Challenges of live environments: Building a train station without stopping service

Back in 2012, the City of Chicago announced a major project to construct a new “EL” station at the intersection of Wabash Avenue and Washington Boulevard, one of the busiest sections of The Loop.

Construction of the $75 million station began in 2015 and is slated to open in late 2017. Come take a behind-the-scenes tour with us as we catch a glimpse of what designing, engineering, and constructing a train station is like in a live environment, without interrupting transportation service.
