Excerpt: Sox-35th is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, located in Chicago, Illinois, and serving the Red Line. It is situated at 142 W 35th Street in the Armour Square neighborhood. It opened on September 28, 1969 along with the other stations on the Dan Ryan branch. Currently, the station serves U.S. Cellular Field, the stadium of the Chicago White Sox, and takes its name from this location, originally serving the now-demolished Comiskey Park, which had been located across the street from the current park.

An auxiliary entrance is located on the 33rd Street overpass, and this entrance connects to the station via a pedestrian bridge. At both entrances, a fare turnstile is located at street level and passengers must take stairs, an escalator, or the elevator to the platform. The platform is an island platform; northbound trains stop on the east side, and southbound trains stop on the west side. A rapid transit line in the median of the Dan Ryan Expressway was initially proposed in 1958, before the expressway was built. In 1966, Chicago voters passed a bond issue to provide $28 million in funding for new rail lines in the median of the Dan Ryan and Kennedy Expressways, qualifying the routes for federal aid funds. The Chicago Plan commission approved plans for the new routes in January 1967, estimating the cost of the Dan Ryan line to be $28 million; Sox-35th, called White Sox-Illinois Tech at the time, was included in the plans. Federal funding for the lines was approved in March 1967. Mayor Richard J. Daley subsequently stated that construction would begiPlease note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
