Red Line South Reconstruction
...until work begins!
Starting May 19, 2013
Faster. Smoother. Better.
The south Red Line, called the Dan Ryan branch, is more than 40 years old and is being completely rebuilt. CTA is rebuilding the tracks along the south Red Line, from Cermak-Chinatown to 95th/Dan Ryan—a project that will provide faster, more comfortable and more reliable service for Red Line riders.
Crews are replacing everything in the track bed: ties, rail, third rail, ballast and drainage systems. Some stations are receiving improvements ranging from new canopies, paint and lighting upgrades to new benches and bike racks, plus accessibility upgrades (including elevators) that'll make the entire route newly accessible.
