Metro Transit will host two open houses on the Secure Platform Plan (SPP) the week of June 26. The first will be held on June 27 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 207 East Main Street Belleville, IL 62220. According to Metro Transit, the goal of the project is to transform the original open-access MetroLink platforms into a more secure system with gated customer entrances, fencing, and an expansive real-time camera network.
Those who attend will hear information about this $52 million transformation that will break ground later this year at four MetroLink stations in Illinois including: Emerson Park, Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center, Washington Park, and College.
In addition, a virtual public meeting for SPP will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, June 28, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Register for the virtual meeting here.
