The new Schenectady Amtrak Station, at Erie Boulevard and Liberty Street, has been taking shape since construction was started in January by Murnane Building Contractors of Plattsburgh, NY. The Gazette article “Work to start on train station” (by Stephen Williams, Dec. 29, 2017) reported that the project is expected to be completed in November 2018.
