On Friday, March 9, the Village's contractor (Structures Construction) began an approximately three-month long project to improve Lake Bluff's Metra station. Train schedules are not affected. The project will preserve the station's historic charm while adding modern amenities, including LED lights and bathrooms accessible for persons with disabilities. The project is funded mostly by Metra. Lake Bluff is administering construction, as well as providing a limited financial contribution.
