The CTA is soliciting feedback on its planned overhaul of the Wilson Red Line station.
The agency last week released a draft assessment of the environmental impact of the project, which would make the Wilson stop a transfer point for the Purple Line and make the stop accessible for riders with disabilities.
Under the CTA's $203 million makeover plan, other changes to the station could include:
>> Longer and wider platforms
>> Three new station entrances
>> New escalators and elevators
>> Additional bike parking
>> Removal of some "L" columns on Broadway
>> Restoration of the stationhouse's 1923 terra cotta exterior
The agency plans to hold a public hearing about the project at 6 p.m. Feb. 18 at Uplift Community High School, 900 W. Wilson Ave.
Following the public hearing, the CTA will submit the final environmental assessment with public comments to the Federal Transit Administration for approval.Copyright © 2015, RedEye
