Congress Comes to Town

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. -- U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer and Congressman Brian Higgins attended groundbreaking ceremonies on Monday at the soon-to-be revitalized Jamestown Train Station.

The train station, which was first constructed in 1931 and closed in 1973, will begin renovations that will allow it to become fully operating, bringing commerce and tourists to the area. Western New York’s congressional delegation has worked to secure over $4.6 million in funding for the project since 2005.

Congressman Higgins also visited the Jamestown Airport with Dunkirk Aviation President Lou Nalbone to announce $412,000 in new Department of Transportation funding for Chautauqua County airports.

Tune into Channel 2 On Your Side at 5 and 6 p.m. tonight for the full story.
