Depot Marketplace

The Hutchinson EDA, in partnership with the City of Hutchinson and the McLeod County Rail Authority, is working on a project to redevelop the railroad depot site on Adams Street, in downtown Hutchinson.

Plans call for the site to be cleaned up, the existing quonset building will be removed, the historic rail depot will be shifted on the site (so its parallel to Washington Avenue) and placed on a new foundation, a paved parking lot will be constructed and a new pavilion will be constructed that provide a permanent home for the Downtown Farmer’s Market.

Currently we are in the process of doing an environmental review of the site.  Once that’s done (hopefully by mid-August) we should be ready to move forward with site clean-up.  Stay tuned for further developments!
