Crews are rebuilding the station to include enclosed, ADA-accessible street-level entrances and lobbies with elevators; new stairs and headhouses; new composite deck platforms; and new lighting and signage.

This is part of the Metra-Electric's multi-million dollar plan to transform all 13 stations on the line. Similar work is underway at the 147th Street/Sibley Boulevard station, which is expected to be completed in the spring of 2024.
