Peace on Earth

This Red Line subway station at Jackson has taken on a distinctively seasonal appearance in this view.  There isn't the hint of snow anywhere in sight.

Construction has been halted on an expensive project that would have had a significant impact on the two underground arteries.  A new subway station between State and Dearborn (and Randolph and Washington) was to be the terminal for non-stop routes to both O'Hare and Midway airports.  The new services in cars specially configured for the airline passenger's needs was envisioned to be run by private enterprise on public infrastructure.

Massive cost overruns on initial work have left this entire scheme in an active status, pending finding additional private enterprise participation.
