Construction Update
Union Station Transit Center Coming Together

Union Station Transit Center

Union Station Transit Center, still in its early stages.

Work continues in the West Loop on the Union Station Transit Center that will connect Amtrak and Metra passengers to CTA buses, while alleviating the traffic tie-ups long a part of everyday life on South Canal Street and West Jack Boulevard.

It took awhile for progress to be visible here, beyond the digging up of the former surface parking lot, and foundation work. But now, the future bus shelters look a lot like, well, future bus shelters. The east end of the construction site, soon to include an underground connection to Union Station itself, still has a long ways to go.
