CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

After a year of planning, intensive design work and thorough probing and analysis by preservation architects, the real construction work on Union Terminal is underway. 

The restoration of Union Terminal requires a keen understanding of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and history as modern construction and engineering techniques blend with early 20th century materials and design to save iconic Union Terminal.
