Chicago, IL United States | 2007
Nestled deep in one of Chicago's thriving neighborhoods stands the historic Sedgwick Station. Built in June 1900, this elevated station was incorporated into Chicago Transit Authority's (CTA) $530 million Brown Line Capacity Expansion Project. Maintaining the original design and making the station accessible to all customers, including those with disabilities, were primary goals of the restoration project. The stairways were widened, two elevators were added, new turnstiles installed, lighting improved, and platforms lengthened to accommodate increased commuter traffic.
"galvanized steel will allow the station's renovations to last another hundred years."
To secure the $530 million investment, CTA specified galvanizing for Corrosion Protection, just as it was selected back in 1900. With the ability to withstand exposure to the elements without developing unsightly and dangerous rust, galvanized steel will allow the station's renovations to last another hundred years.
