MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

An icon in Thai cuisine for the City of Montgomery is closing as it undergoes extensive repairs.

According to a new release from the city, Lek's Railroad Thai, located in the historic Union Station in downtown Montgomery, will be closed for at least 30 days as the city makes repairs to the 116-year-old building.

The building, which was built in 1898, is owned and operated by the city. According to the National Park Service National Historic Landmarks program website, Union Station is a prime example of commercial architecture from the 19th century.

"When you have a building that is well over 100 years old, at one point or another you need to make some repairs," Montgomery General Services Director Steve Jones said. "We want to make sure repairs are done and done right when we find them."

Officials say no other tenants in Union Station will be affected by this repair. Lek's does however have a second restaurant located at 5421 Atlanta Highway in the East Plaze Shopping Center.
