35th St. Walk to Transit Project
35th St. Walk to Transit Project
Beginning in Mid-April, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) will begin implementation of a landscaped pedestrian plaza on the north side of 35th Street at State Street. The infrastructure improvements are part of a federally funded Walk to Transit package that will improve pedestrian safety and accessibility for those using the 35th-Bronzeville-IIT CTA Station. The construction of the plaza is anticipated to last approximately eight weeks pending weather. Pedestrian access to the CTA Green Line will be maintained throughout construction and the westbound 35th Street bus (Route# 35) will temporarily stop directly to the west of State Street. During construction 35th Street will remain open to general traffic in both directions. For additional information or questions, please call 312.744.5900 or email
