Your voice matters!

We strive each day to keep residents, businesses and CTA riders informed about all matters regarding the Red-Purple Modernization (RM) Phase One Project, from utility relocation work and street and alley closures to how the structure is going to look when the project is done.

We want to keep an open dialogue with you the community. This page provides updates on upcoming and past outreach events along with tools on how to receive the latest information.

For general questions about RPM and to sign up for project e-mails, email us at RPM@transitchicago.com. To sign up for construction alerts, click here.
