Work continues at a nice pace at the CTA Loyola Red Line station. The CTA in collaboration with Loyola University Chicago is rehabbing the station and building a new plaza in front of the recently built entrance.
And late last month the CTA finally opened a new entrance on the west side of the station on Loyola Avenue. Improvements slated for the station include:
- Repairs to the platforms and curtain walls.
- New windows, flooring, lighting and interior finishes.
- Additional bike parking (48 total) - already done.
When the project is done the old entrance on Sheridan will close and the dangerous crossing right at the viaduct will be removed.
