Chicago Union Station Switches Being Rebuilt

Beginning July 6 Amtrak will begin a 40-day project to rebuild switches at the south end of Chicago Union Station.

Most of the work on Control Point Harrison will be performed overnight and on weekends.

Located beneath the new post office building north of Roosevelt Road, CP Harrison handles the majority of rail traffic at the station.

During the project, workers will replace six switch and turnout points used primarily by Metra trains to access tracks 2 through 14.

Amtrak said some Metra trains could encounter minor delays and platform changes during the evening and on weekends.

Metra said it is working with Amtrak and BNSF to minimize the disruptions.
