Work is scheduled to begin this month on a $7.5 million project at Kansas City's Union Station that will expand Science City and add a bridge from the front of the station to the parking garage.

The Kansas City Star reports the project will create a space for a new, outdoor Science City exhibit and a plaza area for events.

The bridge will improve access to the parking garage from Pershing Road.

Union Station officials say it's the largest construction project since the station was renovated and reopened in 1999.

Station president George Guastello says visitors will experience minimal inconvenience from the project. All attractions at the facility will continue to be available.
