Community meetings set for rehab work on north Red Line stations

Two aldermen serving the north end of the Red Line are hosting meetings for constituents about the rehab scheduled to start this spring on seven Red Line stations.

Alderman Harry Osterman (48th Ward) will hold a meeting at 6:30 p.m. March 21 at the Broadway Armory about the extensive rehab project. (Read project details here.) This is a "two-fer" meeting, with the first part of the meeting will focus on construction of the new Edgewater Library. Then the CTA will present the details of the work at the Granville, Thorndale, Berwyn, Argyle and Lawrence stations. From Osterman's newsletter:

"This project will include structural improvements to the track, platform and viaducts while also making interior and exterior improvements to the station houses. At this meeting, you will learn about the overall project and how the construction season will affect our community’s stations this summer."

The following week, 49th Ward Alderman Joe Moore will host a similar meeting at 7 p.m. March 27 at the United Church of Rogers Park, 1535 W. Morse. That meeting will focus on work at Morse and Jarvis, plus preview unrelated work at Loyola.

  • Zolk from and who posted on the issue here later said that there was word that Bryn Mawr and Berwyn were switched because Bryn Mawr was supposed to get more work, independently. Maybe Osterman will comment on that.

  • Jack, do you have a link on Kevin's post? What thread?

  • In reply to Kevin O’Neil:
