Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

Mayor Rahm Emanuel broke ground for the new 95th Street Terminal on the Chicago Transit Authority’s Red Line, one of the largest rail station projects in CTA history and an investment that will modernize transit and promote economic opportunity on Chicago’s South Side.

The $240 million reconstruction project will create a signature transit hub serving the CTA’s busiest rail line and hundreds of buses that will also serve as a community focal point and an anchor for economic opportunity on Chicago’s South Side.

The station will have buildings both north and south of 95th Street, connected by an enclosed walkway over 95th Street, increasing safety for the thousands of adults and children who move through the station each day, and will include expanded retail concession space. Construction is expected to continue into 2017. The station will remain open throughout the project. More information is available at
