Red Ahead: Red & Purple Modernization

Outreach and events

Lawrence to Bryn Mawr: Stage A to Begin Spring 2021

Upcoming Virtual Town Halls March 2 and March 4, 6-8 p.m.

We’re hosting two virtual town hall meetings to allow members of the communities surrounding the four Lawrence to Bryn Mawr Red Line stations to receive an update on the CTA’s Red and Purple Modernization (RPM) Phase One Project and the reconstruction of station and tracks between N. Ardmore and N. Leland avenues that will begin in spring 2021. Following the presentation, the RPM team will answer questions from residents and CTA customers who attend the meetings.

The virtual meetings will be held via Zoom and will be divided into Lawrence/Argyle and Berwyn/Bryn Mawr to ensure zone-specific information is shared and related questions are answered, though residents and customers can attend any meeting they choose.

Lawrence and Argyle Station Area Meeting

Tuesday, March 2

6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Berwyn and Bryn Mawr Station Area Meeting

Thursday, March 4

6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Registration is required and is available by clicking here.

Granville track construction

To prepare for new track and station construction starting in 2021, we made significant improvements to our our Red and Purple Line track structures in 2020 so we can continue to provide service to our customers during construction. In Fall 2020, we held a briefing with residents near the Red Line and Granville to provide an update on the work.

Virtual town halls 

CTA's RPM team held out first virtual community meetings. While we always prefer to talk face-to-face with local residents, we're grateful to continue to engage with everyone in a safe, informational way.

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.
