TROY, Mich. (WXYZ) - It's been years in the making. Tuesday, leaders in Troy will hold a groundbreaking for the city's new regional transit center.
A ceremony is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at the future site of the Troy Multi-Modal Transit Facility, 1201 Doyle Drive.
The 2,000-square-foot facility will be hub for new high-speed Amtrak passenger trains and act as a service center for buses and taxis.
The project is being made possible by $6.3 million in federal funding.
The transit center has run into several so-called speed bumps over the past several years, most recently by former Troy Mayor Janice Daniels. She opposed accepting and federal money for the project. Daniels' opposition was just one reason that ultimately lead to her being recalled in the Nov. 6 election.
The center is expected to open by October of next year.
