CTA Blue Line's Belmont, Jefferson Park Stops Getting $30.8M Makeover
The Belmont station is the seventh busiest stop along the CTA’s Blue Line, while the Jefferson Park stop is the fourth busiest, according to Curbed Chicago. The CTA is investing $30.8 million in updates for both stations.
The changes to the Belmont station include new lighting, station platforms, and signage, according to the report. The station will also get a new awning. Ross Barney Architects is designing the updates for this station. The CTA hopes that the station will become the “Belmont Gateway,” a community staple for Avondale, Curbed Chicago reports. The station’s updates are slated for completion by the end of 2018.
New awnings are planned for the Jefferson Park stop. The station’s bus bays are also going to be overhauled. The Jefferson Park stop revamp is expected to be done by 2019.
Walsh Construction landed the construction contract for both stops, according to the report.
