Project Description

This project will rehabilitate the River Forest station and associated retaining walls that are located along the Union Pacific West (UP-W) Line. The historic station was originally constructed in 1915 and is currently inaccessible. The project scope includes extensive repairs to the entrance ramps, retaining walls, and platforms. Additional project elements may include but are not limited to, sidewalk repairs, upgraded bike facilities, landscape enhancements, entrance staircase repairs, and other related work as needed. This is a multi-year, multi-phase project that will fund design engineering services and any environmental analyses as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The station will be made fully ADA accessible upon completion of the project.
