Construction has started on a $33.2 million project to replace and upgrade the Grayland Metra station and 122-year-old railroad bridge over Milwaukee Avenue in Irving Park.

IHC Construction Companies started work at the 3729 N. Kilbourn Ave. site in late September, with a ceremonial groundbreaking scheduled for Thursday (Oct. 6).

The station will be rebuilt with longer platforms, new public address equipment, visual information signs, shelters with on-demand heat on each side, lighting and stairs and ramps to make it fully ADA-compliant.

Work is expected to be completed by spring 2024. The bridge was originally constructed in 1899.
