Just off the MSU campus, demolition crews are preparing to raze the first in a series of buildings to make way for a new multi-modal transportation center. The 40-year-old Amtrak depot will eventually come down and be replaced with a larger facility that can handle train, bus and even taxi traffic.

The Capital Area Transportation Authority, or CATA, is overseeing the project through a federal grant from the US Department of Transportation. CATA president and CEO, Sandy Draggoo, tells us more about the status of the project.
