Update on construction of “Damen” infill station on CTA Green Line

The city that gets things done. :slightly_smiling_face:

An infill station on Metra (regional rail) will open next week on the North Side of Chicago.

Peterson Ridge station is between the existing Ravenswood and Rogers Park stations on the Union Pacific North line (which connects Chicago with Kenosha, Wisconsin).

All weekday trains will stop at this station, and it’s only a 22-minute ride to downtown.

Two other infill rail stations are currently under construction in Chicago.

One is Damen station on the Green Line. This is on the West Side at Damen Ave/Lake St. This station will be just north of United Center (NBA/NHL arena) and will open some time later this year:
