ROME, N.Y. -- As promised, the Rome Train Station will be reopened just in time for Christmas.

The station is to reopen for business this Monday at 7 a.m. The temporary walkway that was needed for the station to reopen has been completed.

In July, part of the ceiling collapsed in the passenger tunnel leading to the platform. The station has been closed ever since until this temporary walkway could be built. The city secured government funding to cover a majority of the costs of the project.

“We are very pleased with the temporary walkway construction. It’s very safe and secure, which is what we were worried about. Now at this point we will restore full passenger service to rome. Then we will start making arrangements to what the full repair will look like,” said Rome Mayor Jacqueline Izzo.

Renovations on the entire station will continue through 2019. The city does not expect there to be any more temporary closures.
