Does anyone have any new information regarding the proposed 35th Street stop on METRA ?

Has work begun yet and is there a timetable for completion ?

Knowing Metra, not in our lifetime.

Actually, I believe its 2009.

As of October, it was set for construction this year (http://www.topix.net/content/trb/2393938355039669116517238956864125549128). The money was already obtained, and its in Metra's 2007 budget (no link to it because its gigantic, but its on Metra's site).

Also, its scheduled to open for the 2008 season (http://http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4155/is_20061014/ai_n16785873).
