Red Line Modernization Approved in the Nick of Time

The City of Chicago has scored a much needed $1.1 billion commitment in federal funding for the ongoing modernization of the Red Line just days before President Barack Obama is scheduled to leave office. Combined with $1 billion that will be raised by the city, the CTA will have $2.1 billion to help pay for the costly Red-Purple modernization, including the Belmont Flyover. Several stations, including the Lawrence, Argyle, Berwyn, and Bryn Mawr stops, will be completely rebuilt and will also include new elevators to make the stations ADA compliant.
