Stage 2 of Station and platform rehab work is nearing completion at the CTA's Grand-State Red Line station. After Labor Day work will shift to the northeast side of the mezzanine area, according to Brian Steele, a spokesperson for the city's Dept. of Transportation.
"That transition will take about a month to
complete," said Steele. "Once that transition is finished, the station will have two
fully operational entrances/exits and one exit-only.
From mezzanine to platform, two stairways will access the southbound side, and two stairways will access the northbound side."
The project is a little behind schedule because of the harsh winter we had. Here's the schedule for the remainder of the project.
- Stage 2 completion (current stage on NW corner): September 2010
- Stage 3 completion (NE corner): November 2011
- Substantial completion: January 2012
- Punch list completion: March 2012
