63rd is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, serving the Red Line. The station is located in the median of the Dan Ryan Expressway and serves the Englewood neighborhood. It is near the Englewood Union Station, formerly serving the Pennsylvania Railroad, New York Central, and Rock Island Lines. The former Pennsylvania Railroad tracks (now NS owned) pass over the station.

Structure

Like the eight other stations of the Dan Ryan Branch, 63rd was built by architect Skidmore, Owings & Merrill under a simple design. The station opened on September 28, 1969, before being entirely renovated from 2005 to 2006.

2013 renovation

In 2013, the station was renovated with a new elevator installed (along with Garfield and 87th) as part of the Red Line South Reconstruction project and made all the stations on the Dan Ryan branch accessible.
