During a recent visit to Joliet Union Station I noticed outside construction work has been finished. These pictures were taken as I was about to board Amtrak’s Lincoln Service train to come home. The fencing that was in place during my last trip is now gone. I saw no new construction or workers doing any other projects. From research I did for my last article – a new transportation hub should be in the works. Unlike Bloomington-Normal I’m not seeing any signs of a new terminal being constructed.
Joliet Union Station is no longer an Amtrak station. A new station is currently being built. Passenger boarding area no long looks this way. They spent money for work above – only to tear it up less than a year later. Work above didn’t stay in place long.
