Kedzie–Homan is a station on the 'L' system, serving the Blue Line's Forest Park branch. The station is located in the median of the Eisenhower Expressway within the East Garfield Park neighborhood and has two entrances on the Kedzie and Homan Avenue overpasses. Kedzie–Homan was named Kedzie until the early 1990s, when the name was changed to Kedzie–Homan. However, signs on the platform still referred to the station as Kedzie until 2013, when signs with Kedzie-Homan were installed. In 2000–2001, Kedzie–Homan was renovated to make the station handicapped accessible and improve the overall design of the station.
