JOLIET, Ill. — The city of Joliet will open a new platform for Metra Heritage Corridor trains on Monday, Feb. 12, as the latest step in the ongoing development of a new transit center.

Current, temporary platforms will be blocked off at the same time. The new platforms may be accessed by two sets of tunnels, one of which is through the transit center’s train station, which is still under construction. Plans are for that building to open in April. In the interim, temporary structures for Metra and Amtrak ticket sales remain open.

It will be the second upgrade for Heritage Corridor service in a week. This week, a new station for the line, which sees seven Metra trains on weekdays, opened at Romeoville, Ill.
