"City and Chicago Transit Authority officials today are set to announce the CTA Green Line is getting a new station, at Damen and Lake streets, just a block and a half north of the United Center," reports Greg Hinz in Crains. The Green Line stop will fill in a gap between California and Ashland stops, west of the city's downtown. "Design of the new station is to begin summer, with construction in the third quarter of 2018 and the station projected to open in mid-2020," Hinz writes.

Mary Wisniewski provides additional coverage of the proposed Green Line stop for the Chicago Tribune.
