Metra expands parking at Crystal Lake station

Yesterday, Metra and local officials marked the opening of expanded parking facilities at Pingree Road Station on the Union Pacific Northwest Line in Crystal Lake, Ill.

The 400-space lot features an additional 338 parking spaces, four electronic payment boxes and new striping. Funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the $574,900 project began in September and concluded earlier this month.

Metra expects to receive $140.9 million in ARRA dollars to help fund various projects, such as remanufacturing locomotives, replacing bridges, and expanding and renovating stations.
