How are the Cermak-Chinatown CTA Station Improvements Coming Along?

Last September we had a post about the revamping of the Cermak-Chinatown CTA station and recently we received an email from a reader asking about the construction progress on the project:
Hey guys,

I'm not in the neighborhood anymore but I was kind of curious as to how the Cermak construction is going on the new red line station. Does it look like the new entrance on Archer is going to be open soon?

We haven't seen a ton of progress, but was hoping someone else out in cyberspace could provide an update for our emailer and all the readers.

For more background here is a link to a description of the project:

  1. I haven't been by there lately, but the work thus far has been very minor. The link you attached shows the project not really starting until June though, so I guess the work so far is to be expected.

  2. they are also building an exit on the Archer side as well - FINALLY!!

  3. It's funny how skyscrapers are built in less than 2 years but this takes as long! Public funds at work!

  4. New access to china town L stop. Archer and Clark. Really nice. Opened up yesterday.
