Walsh Construction completes renovation of Belmont Blue Line Station

CHICAGO - Walsh Construction has completed renovations to the Chicago Transit Authority’s Belmont Blue Line station.

Walsh joined Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, CTA officials and project leaders for a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Chicago’s Avondale neighborhood.

Mayor Emmanuel spoke of how the work reflects his pride in the city. “Having now both our architecture and our mass transit system, which are both the envies of the world, and to bring those two strengths together in a single endeavor speaks to who we are in the city of Chicago,” he said. “The time has paid off and it is a beautiful contribution to the Avondale neighborhood.”

A standout element of the $17 million station renovation is a new blue steel canopy designed by Ross Barney Architects, which serves as a unique and visually appealing gateway to the community. Other features of the modernized station include new concrete flooring, additional overhead heaters, LED lighting, and improved signage to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for commuters.

These were the first major renovations to the Belmont Blue Line Station since it opened nearly 50 years ago.
