CTA to hold more public hearings on Red Line extension


Early next month, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) will hold a second round of public hearings to obtain input on the proposed extension of the Dan Ryan branch of the Red Line. The first meetings were held in April 2007.

CTA is considering transit technologies and alignments in a study area bordered by 95th Street on the North, Ashland Avenue on the west, Stony Island Avenue on the east and the Cal-Sag Channel/Little Calumet River and 134th Street on the south. The project would relieve congestion at CTA's existing 95th Street Station.

The meetings are being conducted as part of an Alternatives Analysis study, which examines all available transit options to help the agency determine a locally preferred alternative. The study is required by the Federal Transit Administration as part of the New Starts process.
