I have fallen a bit behind showing the “after” photos of the newly rehabbed Berwyn and Lawrence stations on the CTA’s Red Line. Berwyn looks very similar to the other stations, with a bright, expanded stationhouse, more turnstiles, and a concrete platform. Photos are from the CTA Flickr set.
But not so much at Lawrence. There was no indoor “stationhouse” at Lawrence, not is there one now. But it is enclosed with fences, and does feature more turnstiles. And Lawrence is the only one of seven rehabbed Red Line north stations to get a wooden platform. “Because the infrastructure is not fully supported by solid-fill embankment, a precast-concrete platform is not feasible,” said a CTA spokesperson. Photos are from the CTA Flickr set and CTA Station Watch.
Finally, check out the artistic CTA photo in the gallery of Loop “L” track work from early November.
