Newly rebuilt Flossmoor Station dedicated

(June 26, 2015) - 

Metra and Flossmoor officials today dedicated the newly completed $4 million reconstruction of the platform and related facilities at the Flossmoor Station on Metra’s Electric District Line.

“I am pleased to be able to dedicate this rebuilt station, which will serve as a new and much more attractive gateway to our system and to the community of Flossmoor,” said Metra CEO Don Orseno. “We hope our Flossmoor riders will enjoy using this station for many years to come.”

Orseno was joined at the groundbreaking by Flossmoor Mayor Paul Braun, state Rep. Anthony DeLuca and Metra Board Members Don De Graff, Romayne Brown and Norman Carlson.

The project replaced the existing platform, the concrete foundation as well as the north and south head house walls. The work also included:

  • A new warming house
  • A renovated elevator
  • New LED platform lighting designed to match the village’s existing street lights
  • The replacement of the existing accessible ramp, stair, and trench drain on the northwest side of the tunnel and all of the trench drain inside the tunnel
  • Repairs to the concrete bridge columns on the south side of the station
  • New retaining walls on the southwest side of the station and on the northwest side of Flossmoor Road
  • A new stairway for the northeast side of the depot

The station serves more than 800 riders each weekday on the Metra Electric Line, which runs between University Park and Millennium Station in downtown Chicago.

The project was funded primarily with proceeds from Metra’s share of the state bond program. Flossmoor provided funding to cover the costs of the decorative light fixtures on the platform.
