Does anyone know what is going on around the UIC-Halsted stop on the Congress Line? They appear to be building a bypass track in the open area north of the tracks. I don't think it was there last Monday.

I went by there again today, 04/24/2006, and there is now a temporary stairway leading down to track level just north of the revenue entrance.

I wonder if they are going to be doing some major work on the station or tracks and are making a temporary facility.
