The newest addition to the Heritage Corridor Metra Line is now open in Romeoville following a ribbon cutting last week.

The Romeoville station is the first new stop on the Heritage Corridor since Metra’s creation in 1984 and the first new stop on any Chicagoland Metra line since 2011.

“This stop has been a goal of ours for a long time,” said Mayor John Noak. “We’re excited to finally see that goal achieved and believe it will be a tremendous asset for everyone who lives and works in this region.”

Service at the Romeoville station will began on Monday, February 5 with the first train rolling into the station at 5:54 AM.

Commuters will arrive at Chicago’s Union station 58 minutes later.

The station has 123 parking spaces, 24 of which are reserved for permit parking. Those spaces sold out on the day they were released, demonstrating the excitement for the new station.

The station is located at 899 East Romeo Road, near the intersection of 135th Street and New Avenue.
