NEW LENOX, Ill. — The Village of New Lenox has approved an $8.6 million bid to build a new Metra station.

John Burns Construction Co., which had the lowest qualified bid among 12 bidders, was awarded the contract at a Nov. 11 meeting of the village board, Patch.com reports. The station is to be “substantially complete” by Nov. 14, 2020,with the rest of the work completed by July 30, 2021.

New Lenox, on the Metra Rock Island line, has been without a station since 2018, when its prior structure, built by the Rock Island in 1900, was closed to make room for a retail project adjacent to the station site. That station was subsequently moved to a farm 5 miles away which is also home to other historic structures. [See “New Lenox, Ill., station set to move,” Trains News Wire, Aug. 10, 2019.
