Metra activity/storage between Ping Tom park and 16/17th St?
Anybody knows why there is a lot of activity next to the tracks situated between Ping Tom park and 16&17th St? It seems that, for a couple of months now, there is a daily crew working there and storing/gathering tracks and other railroad supplies.
Are they going to replace the track, construct a new one, ...?
Or is it just being used as a local storage depot?
