State funds will help pay for electrical upgrades at Buffalo's Central Terminal.
A $250,000 grant will upgrade the landmark's electric panels, allowing "full utilization of the historic building," according to a statement from the Central Terminal Restoration Corp. and Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes' office.
The state money is administered by the state Dormitory Authority. The money will cap a $500,000 investment effort that includes roof restoration and will allow the completion of solar panel installation, officials said.
The Central Terminal has been considered as a site for a new train station in Buffalo, though officials are expected to announce Thursday the station will be located downtown near Canalside.
