Work has begun at the CTA Brown Line Francisco station to replace deteriorated wood platforms. The CTA admitted it made a mistake in installing wood flooring with a fire-retardent chemical, but without a water sealant.
These photos by Tattler reader Cheryl show the new pressure-treated wood planks being installed at Francisco. Other photos show the splitting and cracking from August. See the previous CTA Tattler story and photos, plus the Tribune follow-up story. Thanks for the photos, Cheryl.
