Amtrak will begin a 40-day project to revamp switches on the south end of Union Station, and that could mean delays and platform changes for riders on the BNSF, SouthWest Service and Heritage Corridor lines.
Metra police said the move was an effort to raise officers’ visibility as the summer season brings more casual riders on the trains, along with regular daily commuters.
Metra is apologizing to riders a day after signal problems forced Union Station commuters to experience lengthy delays, crowded conditions and communication issues.
Metra plans schedule adjustments it is characterizing as minor, but to make sure, it wants input from riders.
Plans to expand commuter service on the Heritage Corridor rail line in the southwest suburbs appear to be on track.
