Chicago Transit Authority will hold a public meeting to receive input on the proposed extension of the Yellow Line. The meetings are part of a federally required Alternatives Analysis study. The meeting will be held:
Tuesday, August 26
6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
National Louis University
North Shore Campus at Skokie - 3rd FL
5202 Old Orchard Rd
(accessible to people with disabilities)
Extending the Yellow Line would create better connections for reverse-commuters between the Yellow and Red Lines and also would provide more convenient service to major destinations such as Westfield Shoppingtown Old Orchard, Cook County Courthouse and adjacent office, and retail and residential developments currently beyond the reach of the existing CTA terminal on Dempster Street.
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.
