CHICAGO — Metra’s historic Deerfield station on the Milwaukee District/North Line will have its cedar shake roof and wooden floor replaced with a $175,000 investment from Metra. The commuter railroad’s board of directors recently approved the intergovernmental agreement with the Village of Deerfield for the improvements.

“Today’s action by our Board allows us to fund critical repairs to this historically significant building in partnership with the village,” says Metra Executive Director and CEO Don Orseno. “This train station is a community landmark and this project ensures that it will continue to serve as a welcoming gateway to Deerfield for years to come.”

The Deerfield Station was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998. It originally served passengers on the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad.
