CTA Construction Work to Require Extension of Dan Ryan Lane Closure at 95th Street

October 31, 2017

Innermost southbound lane closed for two more weeks, until Nov.13

Construction work associated with the 95th Street Terminal Improvement Project requires that the current closure of the innermost southbound lane of the Dan Ryan Expressway near 95th Street be extended until Monday, November 13 at 6 a.m.  The innermost northbound lane will reopen for vehicular traffic as scheduled on Wednesday, November 22 at 5 a.m.

Both innermost lanes are adjacent to CTA’s Red Line tracks and will continue to be closed from 87th Street to just south of 95th Street.  The closures of these lanes is required as CTA works to expand and greatly improve the 95th/Dan Ryan Red Line rail station and bus terminal.

The $280 million 95th Street Terminal Improvement project is the largest station project in CTA history and will create a signature station for the South Side that will better serve the existing high volume of riders by providing safer passenger access to buses and the train station.

Construction on the 95th Street Terminal began in late 2014. The south terminal is scheduled to be completed in early 2018 while the north terminal will be ready in late 2018. CTA continues to work closely with partner agencies Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), the Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) as well as the Illinois State Police (ISP) while this major project is under construction.
