The new 95th terminal is open

[VIDEO] It was probably open since Saturday night when they had workers pass out flyers with regards to the change at 95/Dan Ryan. As part of this extensive rehab project a new south terminal is open and is now where Red Line riders will currently board not only Pace and CTA buses also Red Line trains.

There was work on a new platform directly under the south terminal so trains will be pulling from a different location than usual. The original station house on the north side of 95th will be rehabbed. As a result it is now closed. As you see in the video above there was a ribbon cutting ceremony that shows many state & local officials.

I did go up there around the time of the ribbon cutting to just check out the scene. Snapped a few shots long the way I would've liked to have gotten the inside of the terminal where there was a black curtain blocking the view of the back part of the terminal. There was a police officer posted to that curtain so I chose not to snap a shot of it. I presume this is where the ribbon cutting had taken place yesterday.

One thing that can be said utilizing ig is that Mayor Rahm Emanuel was there for this momentous occasion which you can see in the post below. Feel free to swipe to see a more complete record of Sunday.

I would like to share some other pics at a later time. Would very much like to share some pics inside the station. Of course there are some areas I need to avoid snapping shots of!
