Amtrak, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT), Metra, and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), along with input from stakeholders and the general public, prepared a Master Plan for Chicago Union Station in 2012. The 2012 Master Plan included both transportation-related improvements and provisions for transit-oriented developments surrounding the station. The Current Design Work advances 13 of those near-term transportation improvements. For more information, including links to the 2012 Master Plan Report, click here
