The Chicago Plan Commission met for more than five hours Thursday for its final meeting under Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s administration.
During their meeting, commissioners approved a proposal from Metra to renovate the Van Buren commuter rail station just off Michigan Avenue near Grant Park. If approved by the City Council, changes to the station would include work on station waiting areas, expanded ADA access, an overhaul of a pedestrian tunnel, new shelters and platforms and improved access to Grant Park and the lakefront.
