FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Historic Amtrak Station comes back to life

WHO: Fresno Mayor Alan Autry; Congressman Jim Costa; Bill Bronte, Acting Chief, Division of Rail, California Department of Transportation; City Council Member Cynthia Sterling.
WHAT: Public dedication of the newly restored and rehabilitated Fresno Santa Fe Depot.
WHEN: Saturday, February 12, 2005 beginning at noon
WHERE: The Fresno Santa Fe Depot is at 2650 Tulare Street , between P and Q Streets, in downtown Fresno .
ACTIVITIES: The public is invited to attend the ceremonies, which will include a ribbon-cutting, tour of the restored station facilities, historic exhibits, and refreshments.
BACKGROUND:

The $6 million restoration project includes new and enlarged passenger ticketing and waiting areas, a large ticketing counter, business offices, adjacent retail space, increased parking, new landscaping and better access for buses, taxis and pedestrians. The station now has the original California Mission-style appearance it had when it opened in 1899.

Major funding for the restoration comes from the California Department of Transportation. The City of Fresno purchased the building and land from Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway. Other fund contributors were California Pollution Control Financing Authority and the State of California Office of Historic Preservation.
