CTA Unveils Design for Rebuilt State/Lake Elevated Station

The Chicago Transit Authority and Chicago Department of Transportation on Wednesday unveiled the preliminary design concepts for a rebuilt State/Lake ‘L’ station. The new State/Lake CTA station will replace the more than 100-year-old existing structure with a modern, fully accessible rail hub. 

The new station will include wide balconies open to the public facing north and south that create overlooks of State Street, including an up-close view of the landmark Chicago Theater. 

“Given that the State and Lake CTA Station lies within the beating heart of Chicago, we must pave the way for its full modernization and make it easily accessible for all transit riders,” said Mayor Lori Lightfoot. “In addition to accessibility, this project also demonstrates our commitment to the full revival of the Loop—which is the economic engine and cultural hub of our great city.”

To date, the project has been awarded $130 million in federal funding.
