CINCINNATI - Workers are putting the finishing touches on the Union Terminal restoration project before the city treasure reopens Nov. 10.

That includes installing “thousands “ of new LED lights to better illuminate the clock over the entrance.

“This is probably one of the coolest little spots in the building,” Troy Holman, a foreman for Centennial Preservation Foreman, said inside the alcove where the clock sits.

Another big project is restoring the fountain in front of the building.

“A lot of this is taking it back to the original construction, the original color schemes, the new colored concrete, going back to the original Tarazzo finish,” said Steven Swisher, Turner Construction Senior Project Manager.

Crews are also restoring a lunch counter.

“This space will go back to being a lunch space, a dining space for folks day to day,” said Cody Hefner of Cincinnati Museum Center.
