Metra officials announced today that due to a power maintenance project between the Richton Park and University Park stations on the Metra Electric Line, the University Park Station will be closed on both Sunday, July 22 and Sunday, July 29.
On July 22 and July 29, regularly scheduled Sunday service will operate; however, all Metra Electric mainline service will originate from and terminate at the Richton Park Station. No trains will service the University Park Station.
Passengers who would normally use University Park on July 22 and July 29 are advised to use the Richton Park Station instead.
During the closure, Metra crews will install an additional overhead DC line to supply power to a substation for Metra’s Richton Yard. The added power will support upgrades to the yard. Power will be shut off between University Park and Richton Park during the installation process.
