Work Begins On New Washington/Wabash CTA Station
ABC reports that traffic is being rerouted around Washington and Wabash, where work has begun on a $75 million CTA station that will serve as the gateway to the Chicago Loop and Millennium Park. The train station, expected to be complete in 2016, will combine two current stations- Randolph and Madison, both of which are on Wabash- and serve the Brown, Green, Orange, Pink and Purple lines. It is also expected to ease congestion, modernize traffic flow and improve access to Chicago's Loop. But right now, the construction is causing traffic detours and closures.
