CHICAGO — Leaders in the City of Chicago and at the Chicago Transit Authority have unveiled final design plans for the agency’s new signature 95th Street Terminal now under construction. The $280-million-project will rebuild the Red Line’s busiest station on the south side of the city.

“In building a new, state-of-the-art CTA transit hub for the South Side, [Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel] and I strongly believe that form and function are both very important to this project. This terminal will provide a safer, more convenient and pleasant commuting environment for the 20,000-plus customers who pass through 95th each day,” says CTA President Dorval R. Carter Jr.

In describing plans for the rail terminal in a recent news release, CTA says the new designs present a much bolder architectural statement.

The new station is expected to open in 2017.
