CTA completes station rehab


The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and Chicago Department of Transportation recently unveiled a renovated Lake Street subway station on the Red Line.

The $15 million rehabilitation project included rebuilding the station’s mezzanine and platform between Lake and Randolph streets, expanding the public area of the mezzanine level by 1,500 square feet, and adding four turnstiles and three escalators.

Next month, the authority will install electronic kiosks on the platform and mezzanine levels to broadcast CTA news and information.

In May 2004, the agency began the project, which was funded by the Federal Transit Administration and Illinois Department of Transportation.
