Portland Union State Restoration
Cost Estimate: $11 million
The historic Portland Union Station along the Cascades line in Oregon is now undergoing significant repair work as a result of more than $10 million in funds from several federal, state and local sources being made available to the state. Built in 1896, the station is on the National Register of Historic Places and serves as the city’s transportation hub.
This renovation project includes roof repair and replacement; repair and replacement of eaves, gutters, and downspouts; seismic upgrades; window and door repair and replacement around the full exterior of both the Main Building and the Annex; repair of all window awnings on the Main Building; repair of sandstone and masonry around the full exterior of both the Main Building and the Annex; and asbestos abatement, insulation of wood floors above the crawlspace, insulation of steam and condensate pipes, and repairs of utility pipes in the crawlspace of the Main Building.
Expected completion is May 2012.
