06/06/13 173 W, 3 I - + 2 - 2 UPDATED: New Parking at Fire Administration

June 6
Resurfacing has been completed, and the lot has reopened this morning. Workers also found a couple artifacts during the construction, a couple railroad spikes and plates, a couple of which are shown below. As noted in the below link, the property was formerly occupied by Union Station. As the map shows in this prior posting, four sets of tracks as well as the covered "train shed" were present on the property. Thanks again, Jeff!

Reader photo on a new parking area for the Dillon Building in downtown Raleigh, which houses the fire department administrative offices, including the Office of the Fire Chief and the Office of the Fire Marshal. What's changed? Two satellite dishes have been moved, to provide more parking spaces. Work started on Wednesdays, May 29. Wonder what they'll discover under the pavement, as that's the property of the old Union Station. Thanks Jeff! Click to enlarge:

Looks like a lot of work for how many parking spaces? From Google maps maybe 3-6 more spaces?

I’m told the lot will net 3 additional spaces, however this was not the reason the lot was renovated. The lot was in disrepair and had been resurfaced multiple times. It was beginning to be a safety hazard to employees and citizens, hence the overhaul of the lot. They figured it would be a good time to move the satellite dishes to create a few more spaces at the same time.
