Rep. Luis Arroyo and Metra officials unveil Healy Station renovation design

(August 21, 2012) - 
Rep. Luis Arroyo, Ald. Ray Suarez and other dignitaries joined Metra Acting Chairman Larry Huggins and Metra Executive Director Alex Clifford on Tuesday to unveil the design for the reconstruction of the Healy Station on the Milwaukee North Line.
 
The new station will include:
 
A rehabilitated inbound headhouse
  • The addition of a ramp to the outbound platform from Fullerton
  • The removal of a pedestrian crossing between platforms
  • The relocation of the outbound shelter and stairs to provide greater street visibility
  • Stripping and painting the nearby railroad bridge girders, deck and viaduct columns
The design of the project, which was funded by the state bond program, is nearly complete. When construction dollars are secured, the work will take about one year and cost an estimated $4 million.
 
Completion of the project will provide a safe, convenient and appealing train station that will better serve existing riders and attract new ones.
