Chicago's Argyle station reopens after repairs

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

The fourth of seven stations along the north end Chicago's Red Line rail system has reopened after repairs.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel officially marked the reopening of the Argyle station Monday. The station has been closed for six weeks to allow crews to do $10 million in maintenance and improvements.

The station's signature Chinese pagoda platform canopy got a facelift, along with repairs to the track and platform.

The remaining three Red Line stations scheduled for closure and repairs are Berwyn, Lawrence and Jarvis. Work requiring closure is expected to be complete by year's end. The schedule calls for finishing all remaining station and track work by early next year.

The Argyle improvements are part of an $86 million project, with most of the funding coming from the federal government.
