Improving transit accessibility for Chicago’s Chinatown neighborhood.

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) selected Wight & Company to design a small auxiliary transit station at Archer Avenue to serve as the primary station for the Chinatown community for over a year while we constructed the new Chinatown-Cermak station. Because of the high volume of passengers relying on the Cermak-Chinatown station each day, it was not possible to stop service for an extended period of time. The Archer Station facility is still in use today as an auxiliary entrance.
