How these megaprojects could reshape Chicago’s transit map


Pictured Above: Taken from, City officials are weighing options for new infrastructure that would improve access to three proposed megadevelopments in hard-to-reach areas. One of them, the former Michael Reese Hospital site (“The Burnham Lakefront”), above, features re-establishing a street grid throughout the site, shifts a Metra station south from 27th Street to 31st Street and builds a pedestrian bridge with access to the lakefront. Transit improvement ideas for this site are in a far more preliminary stage than those for Lincoln Yards and the 78.
