Kimball Station
4755-57 N. Kimball Ave.
Chicago, IL 60625
Station Status: Alert
The Kimball station on the Brown Line reopened to rail service at
4 a.m. on Friday, January 12, 2007.

Kimball is the third newly renovated station to reopen as part of the Brown Line capacity expansion project. Francisco station, which also closed with Kimball on September 15, reopened for service in March 2007. In August 2006, the Kedzie and Rockwell stations reopened for service following a six-month temporary closure.

A major portion of the reconstruction has been completed at Kimball including brighter lighting, installation of heaters and windbreaks, new benches and an information kiosk.

Construction crews continue to complete construction even after the station opened for service. Additional work includes installing permanent station signs, security cameras, original artwork, windows, canopies and continuing work to complete the extension of the platform. (read more)
