From the Royal Oak Daily Tribune

Construction plans for the Troy-Birmingham Multi-Modal Transit Center took a step forward Thursday when the U.S. House of Representatives voted 221-200 to approve a $447 billion U.S. Transportation, Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill.

The bill includes $1.3 million for the transit center planned to be built behind Midtown Square at Coolidge and Maple in Troy at the Birmingham border. It is one of about 5,000 projects included in the bill.
