Tour Chicago’s newest transit investments in the heart of downtown – the Loop Link bus and complete streets improvements; the Union Station Transit Center; and the Washington-Wabash CTA Elevated Transit Station. Loop Link is a modern transportation upgrade on Washington, Madison, Clinton and Canal that aims to moves people efficiently through the Loop while improving connections between Chicago’s neighborhoods and the jobs and attractions of the central business district. The project managers and project designers will discuss the new dedicated bus lanes, bus-only traffic signals, boarding stations, and protected bike lanes that were installed as part of the project. Connected by the Loop Link on opposite ends of downtown are two new state-of-the-art facilities; the Union Station Transit Center bus terminal; and the new Washington-Wabash CTA Station that replaces two century-old stations with a modern, fully accessible station serving as a gateway to the east side of the Loop and Millennium Park.
