The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) is hosting a “public scoping meeting” to discuss proposed improvements to the Red and Purple Lines. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 26th, 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at New Field School, 1707 W. Morse (at Clark).
The improvements are subject to the availability of funding, and are proposed to bring the existing transit stations, track systems and structures into a state of good repair, from the track structure immediately north of the Belmont station to the Linden terminal in Wilmette.
This project is one part of CTA’s efforts to enhance the entire Red Line.
The CTA is asking 49th Ward residents to attend the meeting to learn more about the project and provide feedback on the proposed alternatives, the purpose and need for the project and the environmental and community impacts to be evaluated. The input will help define the environmental studies to be considered in the Tier 1 Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
This would be an ideal time to join me in pushing for improvements to the Jarvis, Morse and Loyola stations!
In addition to comments received at the meeting, the CTA will accept written comments until
February 18th. Comments may be submitted by mail, e-mail or fax, with attention to:
