This Blue Line CTA Station is Getting a $23M Rehab

New, 8 comments

The Blue Line's Illinois Medical District station (not to far from United Center) is getting a huge upgrade. The CTA announced that it will spend $23M to make all three station entrances accessible for handicapped riders along with additional upgrades. They will be dipping into Rahm's TIF funds for the project. The station is the third-busiest on the Blue Line's West Side Forest Park branch; it has had few upgrades since it opened 55 years ago but expect new station and platform lighting, new security cameras and new CTA Bus and Train Tracker displays. The station canopy will also be repaired.
