Work on Grand-State Red Line station rehab to shift soon to northwest corner

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
