ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) Passenger rail is set to return to Roanoke in two months, and the platform in downtown Roanoke is beginning to look the part.

This was the view from the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge Thursday morning.

A large construction crew has made a lot of progress in the last several weeks.

We're told the project is on schedule for the first day of passenger rail service on October 31st.
