July 3, 2012: When it comes to looks, the Blue Line subway stops are the CTA's ugliest stations. They are dark and dank. When it rains, puddles seem to stick around forever. The LaSalle Blue Line station is no exception. The one bright spot of the Loop station is the vintage photos of Chicago near the turnstyles. But like some other Blue Line stations, the LaSalle stop is not accessible for people with disabilities. Long and narrow escalators shuttle commuters to and from the platform. Last year, the Chicago Department of Transportation unveiled a $5.2 million "intermodal center" to provide easier connection between the Blue Line, the nearby Metra station and CTA buses. Now if only LaSalle Blue Line riders could have an easier connection to the platform.
