    The $50 million Green Line station at Cermak-McCormick Place is slated to be completed by February 2015. NBC Chicago's Kye Martin spoke with the architect about the design and how it'll impact the community. (Published Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014)

    Service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations on the Chicago Transit Authority's Green Line will be temporarily suspended over the weekend for a construction project.

    Crews will continue working on the construction of the new Cermak-McCormick Place station between 1:40 a.m. Saturday through 11:40 p.m. Sunday, the transit agency said.

    Service between the same stations will again be suspended next weekend, January 17 and 18.

    The future Green Line station at Cermak will fill a gap in service between the existing Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations and provide access to rail transit for neighborhood residents and businesses, including McCormick Place.

    The completed station will feature elevators, bike racks, "state-of-the-art" security, enclosed boarding platforms and three entrances, according to the CTA. Work on the $50 million construction project began last fall and is managed by the Chicago Department of Transportation.
