Metra Opens Outbound Side of Ravenswood Station

Metra opened the outbound side of its new Ravenswood Station May 10. The agency is building the station—the fourth busiest outside downtown Chicago—in stages as part of a major project to replace aging bridges along the Union Pacific North Line on the North Side of Chicago. The completed station will have longer, covered platforms, shelters, improved lighting, space for a ticket office and a vendor, ramps, stairs and landscaping. Metra Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer Don Orseno said the former station could not meet passenger demand, adding, “We’re glad to be halfway toward giving our riders the station they deserve and we ask them for just a little more patience and understanding as we move on to the inbound side.” From left: Illinois DOT Deputy Director of Transit David Spacek, Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL), Metra Director of Community Affairs Lynne Corrao, Orseno, Metra Chairman Martin Oberman and FTA Region 5 Administrator Marisol Simon.
