ADA Platform Improvements | Metra

Knight provided engineering design services for platform improvements at three Metra stations - Joliet Union Station, Highlands BNSF Station and Berekely UP Station. These improvements will bring the platforms into compliance with ADA standards by replacing and widening existing platforms and pedestrian crosswalks, upgrading and including proper drainage and ADA slopes. Knight also performed a full topographic survey and analyses of existing conditions to determine if additional lighting needed to be provided, and installed additional signage and new salt boxes, trash receptacles and benches. The projects further included the design of new ADA compliant concrete stairs and replacement of portions of the deteriorated side platforms.
