The Peoria Street CTA station reopened Monday after being closed since June 2014 for work on the Jane Byrne Interchange.

Work continues at the Blue Line station but commuters can exit and enter from Peoria Street. An elevator will be added in September; commuters who need an elevator should use the Halsted Street entrance.

The Peoria Street walkway improvement project is still under way, which will add planter boxes, a berm and landscaping. Work on Peoria Street in front of the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs is set to begin Sept. 8.
