Chicago DOT schedules public meeting to review transit corridor study


On April 13, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) will hold a public meeting to solicit input from south side residents on the South Lakefront Corridor Transit Study.

Funded by a subregional grant from the Regional Transportation Authority, the study will determine how to improve public transit in an area spanning 22nd Street to 95th Street east of the Dan Ryan Expressway. CDOT and the Chicago Department of Housing and Economic Development initiated the study to identify and evaluate alternatives for improving public transportation to enhance mobility and increase residents’ access to jobs. Communities in the study area currently are served by the Chicago Transit Authority’s Red and Green lines, Metra’s Electric District line, and local and express buses.

The public meeting is the first of several planned by CDOT during the course of the study.
