June 12, 2012 -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has posted a video news release to its YouTube channel on www.youtube.com/michigandot. The video captures the excitement of a special ribbon-cutting event held today (June 12) for the opening of the $3.6 million renovated City of Battle Creek Intermodal Transportation Center. The center serves Amtrak rail passengers, Amtrak Thruway Connection passengers on Indian Trails motor coaches, and Greyhound intercity bus riders. The video also shows never-before-seen track improvements between Kalamazoo and Dearborn on Amtrak's Wolverine Service, a federally designated high-speed rail corridor.
Funding for the project was provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 with a grant competitively awarded to the city of Battle Creek.
