West Hall Granite Masonry Restoration Project

After the successful cleaning and restoration of the Main Hall granite masonry, USRC selected John Canning & Co. (Cheshire, CT) to clean, repair, and restore the granite walls, iron electric closet doors (located on the southwest and northwest corners), the laylight framing on the ceiling, and other surfaces in the West Hall. Bethel White granite from Bethel, VT was used for the station’s exterior and interior masonry surfaces, which were built from 1905 to 1908. The work began in June 2022 and is expected to be completed in September.

This project was partially funded by a Transportation Alternatives Program grant administered by the District Department of Transportation.
