Is it or isn't it? I asked a CTA construction worker embedded on the stairs on the south side of Roosevelt just inside the new entrance/exit to the Orange/Green Line stop at Roosevelt. The turnstyles looked all set to go. "Come on in," he said. "It's open." He was working away and there were tools and other accoutrements around--but indeed, it was open.
I wasn't going anywhere but I just wanted to check that if/when I do go somewhere on the Orange or Green Line in the near future that the new entryway really is open for business. It's well lit, clean and new-looking. How long that will last is anybody's guess. It used to smell and look like a sewer when it was just a dark, dirty rarely used exit.
How nice to be able to stick on the south side of Roosevelt (the side I live on) when I come and go from now on.
Now if only we neighbors could find out what that new little building they're building on the north side of Roosevelt just to the east of the north entrance to the station is going to be. Anybody know?
