More than 800 people turned out on Sept. 7 for the ribbon cutting and tours of the station, which has been restored to its original appearance after being used as an auto-repair garage for more than 30 years. It currently houses the city's traffic-signal control operations. The rest of the city's Transportation Department offices will be moved to the station in the coming months.
