    Will any homes be torn down to make room for the new station

    Antwaun Falkner asked 8 months ago

    In planning for the RLE Project, the CTA has determined that it may be necessary to acquire certain properties to implement the project. Property impacts are based on conceptual engineering and represent the maximum impacts to parcels. All owners and tenants whose property would be potentially affected by the Preferred Alignment were notified during outreach that the CTA conducted in January and February 2018 and will be continually engaged throughout the environmental review process. 

    Information about potentially displaced properties is available at www.transitchicago.com/rle/potential-property-displacements.

    The CTA does not plan to pursue acquisition of private property for the RLE project until the environmental analysis is complete and project funding is secured. Estimated property impacts of the Preferred Alignment at this time include 61 residential buildings, 11 of which are currently unoccupied, and six businesses. A total of 226 parcels would be impacted, including 158 that are privately owned. Property impacts will be confirmed in the Final Environmental Impact Statement after more detailed conceptual design.

    What sections of the expansion will be elevated versus at grade?

    niko1499 asked 9 months ago

    The Red Line Extension would operate on an elevated structure from approximately 95th Street to 118th Street, where it would transition to an at-grade profile and then continue at grade before terminating near 130th Street. The 103rd Street, 111th Street and Michigan Avenue stations would be elevated, and the 130th Street station would be at-grade. The RLE will be grade-separated, meaning that it will not intersect or conflict with existing roadways.

    Does CTA already know what kind of development will happen?

    9 months ago

    The CTA is not beginning the planning process with a vision of what future development should look like. Instead, the Transit-Supportive Development Plan will rely on input from community members like you to help determine the community’s needs and priorities. The plan will include recommendations to guide future development in the RLE project area, but it will not specify exact developments.

    If you’d like to help shape these recommendations, please use this website to participate in the planning process!
