|Peeking over the fence at the South Exit|
from the Orange/Green Line at Roosevelt

Do you know what is taking place at the south end exit of the Roosevelt green/orange platform? I was thinking maybe they were going to be turning it into a full entrance/exit to help prevent people from running across the street in the middle of traffic after getting off the east-bound buses? Any other ideas?We asked around a little, but didn't hear anything definitive. We heard they were doing something with a gas line, but we're not sure of the validity of this. If you peak over the fence, it looks like they did some digging (which could validate the gas story), but why did they have to rip down the entire exit?
While we can't confirm or deny that they're making it a full entrance/exit, we would love to see this. Or simply allow people who have cards to enter from this location. It seems like it would help reduce the number of people illegally crossing Roosevelt to get into the CTA entrance.
Does anyone have a clue what's going on here?
