Cook County will redesign and reconstruct the Rosemont Transit Center, a facility located on Cook County property and used primarily by Pace buses that also serves “kiss-and-ride” transit passengers, taxis, private shuttles and rideshare service providers.

 

The Cook County Board Wednesday approved an intergovernmental agreement to expand the transit center. The rehabilitated transit center will provide for an increase in public transportation demands due to the inauguration of express Pace bus service on the reconstructed Jane Addams Memorial Tollway.

 

“I am a strong supporter of expanding transit options in Cook County,” Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle said. “I am pleased that the reconstruction of the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway means public transit service is improved and expanded in the northwest corridor of Cook County.”

 

The Rosemont project is an example of how the County’s Department of Transportation and Highways is improving the region’s transportation network to support economic growth – getting people to and from jobs and employment centers – in addition to filling its traditional role involving maintenance and repair of roads and bridges.

 

The $1.5 million construction project is slated to begin in June 2016 and will be completed by October 2016. Pace will reimburse Cook County for the entire cost of the project, according to the agreement.
