The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) has issued its request for proposals (RFP) to three contracting teams pre-selected by CTA earlier this year to design and build the Red Line Extension in a request for qualifications (RFQ) process begun last year.

The CTA expects to award the contract in 2024 for the project that will extend the Red Line 5.6 miles from 95th Street to 130th Street, including four new, fully accessible stations and park-and-ride facilities. The project also includes a new rail yard and maintenance shop near 120th Street.  

"In this phase, we issue the RFP to the qualified firms — one of which will ultimately build the Red Line Extension," said CTA President Dorval Carter Jr. in a press release.

The prequalified teams are FH Paschen, Ragnar Benson, Milhouse and BOWA Joint Venture; Kiewit Infrastructure; and Walsh VINCI Transit Community Partners
