Bicycle Parking Coming to the Arts District

posted Sep 18, 2012, 7:50 AM by GAAF Webmaster   [ updated Sep 18, 2012, 8:09 AM ]

The Glenwood Ave Arts District is getting an unexpected bonus out of the renovations at the Morse Ave. CTA station.   At the Lunt (north) end of the station, the decrepit store building is being demolished to make way for bicycle parking.

Alderman Joe Moore writes about working with the CTA to find a constructive use for the space after it was determined that the building was in untenable condition and insufficient funds existed for its reconstruction.  According to Ald. Moore, the CTA intended to simply fence in the dead space.

CTA Delivers As Promised - Station Open

posted Aug 13, 2012, 8:37 AM by GAAF Webmaster   [ updated Aug 13, 2012, 8:38 AM ]

As promised, the CTA has re-opened the Morse Ave Red Line station in time for the 2012 Glenwood Ave Arts Fest.

After six weeks of extremely busy renovation, the CTA completed major renovation of the tracks, platform, and station house at Morse Ave.   According to CTA Tattler, the station rehab earns an A- at this point, still needing a few bits of polishing around the edges.

Read a more complete review of the station work here.
