The study will address the redevelopment of parcels of land surrounding the proposed new SES transit station off of Sauk Road. The study will investigate the appropriate mix of residential and commercial uses within the station area and identify wayfinding, access and streetscape improvements.
|Project Type(s):||Transit-Oriented Development Plan|
|Grantee:||Village of South Chicago Heights|
|Current Activities:||The final plan was adopted by the Village Board on September 8, 2009 and the Village acquired property for the proposed station on the SES Line.|
In 2010, Metra completed the Alternatives Analysis for the proposed SouthEast Service Line and on March 7, 2011, then Governor Quinn signed into law House Bill 1644 which established the Southeast Commuter Rail Transit District which now has authority to acquire rights to use the freight rail line, buy land to build train stations and purchase rail cars. However, in 2015 Metra put a hold on further development of the line due to limited funding resources.
