CTA Schedules Final Yellow Line Extension Meeting for April 30

April 15, 2009

Chicago Transit Authority will hold the final public meeting to allow the public an opportunity to provide input on the proposed extension of the Yellow Line.  The meeting is part of a federally required Alternatives Analysis study.  The meeting will be held:

Thursday, April 30
6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Niles North High School - Auditorium
9800 North Lawler Street
Skokie, IL
(location is accessible to people with disabilities)
The proposed extension of the Yellow Line would create better access for customers who travel between the Yellow and Red lines. Service to major destinations such as the Cook County Second Municipal District Courthouse, Westfield Old Orchard Shopping Center as well as other office, retail and residential developments would be enhanced by extending service beyond the current CTA terminal on Dempster Street.
The Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) 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.
