Downtown Metra Station Officially Open

Metra joined with Libertyville and Lake County officials on July 26, 2019 to dedicate the newly renovated station facility at Metra’s Libertyville Station on the Milwaukee District North Line. The $1.3 million project includes a complete renovation of the 1,464-square-foot depot structure and the addition of ADA-accessible restroom facilities. In addition to upgrades to the station’s interior, the renovations included a complete redo of the building’s roofline to create a vaulted ceiling and the upgrade of the exterior features with decorative stone work and other architectural elements.

The project was funded with federal capital dollars obtained by Metra for station improvements and with Libertyville commuter parking lot funds only. RM Swanson Architects of Lake Forest designed the project and Libertyville based Efraim Carlson and Sons was the contractor.
