We’re thrilled to have a new transit option coming to our Ward!
State funds have been released for a Peterson-Ridge Metra station, which will primarily consist of an elevated platform and station house located between Peterson Avenue and Ridge Avenue.
Plans include space for up to 75 parking spaces on the west side of Ravenswood south of Peterson. We have encouraged Metra to include the full 75 spaces as part of the initial construction. There will also be a small number of disabled parking spaces to the north of Peterson, in a new plaza that will be put in where the current embankment sits.
Preliminary work will begin on the bridges this fall, as part of Metra’s caisson repair program, with work on the station expected to begin in Spring 2020 and a target completion date in Spring 2021.
