CHICAGO — Metra issued a statement to customers Thursday that the Madison Street entrance at Union Station has been closed for repairs and inspections until further notice.

“In addition, tracks No. 5, No. 7 and No. 9 on the North Concourse will remain out of service through this evening Metra customers who normally enter or exit Union Station from Madison Street should use the entrance at Adams, Jackson, Canal or Clinton,” Metra said in the statement.
