The CTA has agreed to pay Commonwealth Edison just over $1 million for electrical work they did six years ago on the failed "super station" under Block 37, according to the Sun-Times.
The Block 37 project was former Mayor Daley's pipedream to runan express train from the station between the Blue and Red lines out to O'Hare Airport. That cost us $218 million.
ComEd was paid $3.2 million for their work at the time, but came back with another invoice for almost $2 million. Recently, ComEd and the CTA finally agreed on just over $1 million, and the CTA board approved that at its meeting last week.
So now the CTA has a $219 million hole that "resembles a large, unfinished basement,’’ CTA spokeswoman Tammy Chase said Wednesday.
