Third largest US metropolitan area
The Cermak-McCormick Place station on the Green Line of Chicago 'L' rapid transit system was opened newly. The new station, run by the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), serves now the mounting area near historic Motor Row and affords access to the rapid transit system for residents and businesses in surrounding area.
It is the 146th CTA station and has bridged the gap in CTA service at Cermak, which has been without a station since 1977. The very first station at the location, the old Cermak station, was opened in 1892, but demolished in 1978.
The project was announced in 2012 and broke ground in 2013. Construction was managed by Chicago Department of Transportation. The new station offers a convenient travel option for passengers whilst also supporting economic development in the community.
Location of the Cermak-McCormick Station
Greater Chicago is the third largest of the US metropolitan statistical areas, extending into the states of Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin.
The station is located to the west of the McCormick Place Convention Center, close to the intersection of Cermak Avenue and State Street. It lies in the two-mile section between Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations on the Green Line.
