CTA Public Meetings for Proposed Red Line Extension Scheduled for June

May 22, 2009

The Chicago Transit Authority is inviting the public to two meetings next month to receive input on the latest analysis and a recommended locally preferred alternative for the CTA’s proposed extension of the Dan Ryan branch of the Red Line from 95th Street.  A presentation will begin at 6:15 p.m.

The meetings are scheduled for:

Wednesday, June 3, 2009
6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Olive-Harvey College* Cafeteria
10001 South Woodlawn
Chicago, IL

Thursday, June 4, 2009
6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Woodson Regional Library*
9525 South Halsted
Chicago, IL

(*facilities are accessible to people with disabilities.)

The proposed extension would relieve bus and passenger congestion at CTA’s existing 95th Red Line station and better manage future traffic growth. 

The Federal Transit Administration’s New Starts program requires transit project proposals to proceed through a process of planning, design and construction. The FTA process consists of five formal steps:  Alternatives Analysis, Environmental Impact Statement, Preliminary Engineering, Final Design and Construction. The Alternatives Analysis study is designed to examine all the transit options available and determine a locally preferred alternative.
