Red Line Extension
Connecting 95th Street Terminal to 130th Street
The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) is proposing to extend the Red Line from the existing 95th Street Terminal to the vicinity of 130th Street, subject to the availability of funding. The proposed 5.3-mile extension would include four new stations near 103rd Street, 111th Street, Michigan Avenue, and 130th Street. Each new station would include bus and parking facilities. This project is one part of the Red Ahead Program to extend and enhance the entire Red Line.
CTA wants to keep you informed about our proposed Red Line Extension Project. Read the RLE Summer 2013 Newsletter, here (.pdf).
An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be prepared to evaluate environmental, social, and economic impacts of the construction and operation of the proposed project.
Public and agency input is important. This site will keep you informed about the proposed project, the planning process, and opportunities for public input and participation.
