CTA facilities included in Open House Chicago

Recommended Posts

On October 15 & 16, both the CTA control center on Racine & the Skokie Shops will be included in the 2016 Open House Chicago tours.

There is a major restriction, you must be a member of the Chicago Architecture Foundation & it's RSVP only.

You better not tell WTTW about it. They said that CTA said that the location of the control center [at 120 N. Racine] was highly secret and could not be disclosed.

Of course there's a catch... >:(

Somehow I ended up touring both the Skokie Shops and the Belmont switching tower up north in the early 2000s. Unfortunately I was a kid, so I wasn't able to appreciate it as much as I would now, but I did still like both trips.
