Maybe the corrupt Ald. Beale and his stealing wife can also threaten the CTA that violence will occur if more blacks aren't hired for this construction project...like he just did to the METRA Transit System....
The south branch of the CTA Red Line, one of the busiest on the system, will be shut down for five months next spring for a massive track overhaul, officials announced on Monday.
Once completed, the $425 million project will result in faster service along the line, which was built back in the late 1960s and is in desperate need of an upgrade, the CTA said. The line is called the Dan Ryan branch because it runs down the middle of the expressway.
With new tracks that will be able to better accommodate the new 5000-Series ‘L’ cars that are being put into service, the CTA said the travel time between 95th Street and Chinatown will be 10 minutes faster once the work is done.
CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine reports the move will also save approximately $75 million, which will be used to renovate Red Line stations on the South Side.
