Niagara Falls Intermodal Transportation Center

The City of Niagara Falls, which boasts a landmark tourist attraction—the majestic Niagara Falls, is relocating the City’s existing Amtrak passenger terminal to a site at the United States and Canadian border. Wendel led all phases of planning and design for this project, which includes a new Amtrak passenger terminal, the renovation of the nationally registered historic U.S. Customhouse for DHS border inspection processing, and various retail and interpretative tourist uses. Additional modes of transportation that are accommodated include local bus, intercity bus, pedestrians, bicyclists, taxis and park-and-ride users. Wendel was also responsible for managing the complex NYS SEQR and NEPA requirements, assisting the city in successfully applying for and receiving High Speed Rail funding for the project and performing construction management as advisor services during multiple construction phases.
