Putting a new train station at the Central Terminal could cost up to $70 million more than a station in downtown Buffalo, consultants are set to project Tuesday.

The costs of construction, track replacement, and renovations at the Central Terminal could place an excess burden of between $35-70 million, compared to the cost of a new train station downtown, 7 Eyewitness News has learned from a source with close ties to the stakeholders committee.

Consultants from WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff will provide their findings during a public open house Tuesday evening at the Buffalo Museum of Science between 5-7 p.m.
