Chicago Department of Transportation and Chicago Transit Authority officials will preview the opening of the new LaSalle/Congress Intermodal Center.

It is a transfer station linking CTA buses and Metra trains at the corner of Congress Parkway and Financial Place.

Currently Metra passengers must walk one block north before exiting the train platform.

The addition of the new stair and elevator is meant to make transfers safer and easier.
