$43 Million Renovation Complete on Historic Chicago Transit Station
"The CTA and the city announced Thursday that work has been completed on the Garfield Green Line stop, including the renovation of both the station used by customers and a historic station house, which will be used for community events," reports Mary Wisniewski.
"The $43 million project included landscaping, public art, bigger platform canopies to protect against the weather, and elevator and escalator improvements," according to Wisniewski.
"One of the oldest public transit stations in the country, it was built in 1892 to carry riders to the World’s Columbian Exposition and has been restored to its original turn-of-the-century look, according to the CTA."
More details on the project are included in the article.
