Hazel Crest Metra station renovation complete
With the completion of the $3.5 million project, funded through the State of Illinois Bond Program, the station is now fully compliant with the accessibility requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The facility features a new street-level depot complete with vendor space, a waiting area and restrooms. The project also included rehabilitation of the station’s north and south head houses as well as the stairways leading to the platform. The platform warming shelters were also renewed.
“It has been a long journey in completing the Hazel Crest Metra Station, so we are happy to be standing here today upon completion of this beautiful facility,” said Village President Vernard L. Alsberry, Jr. “This is such a bright spot in a year of the COVID-19 pandemic and other events that have been difficult for the Village of Hazel Crest and the Southland.” Click here to read more Community News in the Tribune/Daily Southtown.
