While the Renew Crew does its work at the Chicago station on the Red Line, a new flooring crew begins to replace rotted floor boards at the Chicago station on the Brown Line. As I noted earlier this year, the CTA admitted it made a mistake in installing wood flooring with a fire-retardent chemical, but without a water sealant.
Tattler reader Cheryl has always been on top of this story, with photos from the Francisco station shown here that I posted in the summer. Now she shares these photos of new boards stacked up on the Chicago Brown Line platform ready to replace the worn flooring.
CTA Tattler Holiday Train outing is this Saturday
Don’t forget to join us on the Blue Line at Jackson station at 4:30 pm Saturday as we start our annual journey on the CTA’s Holiday Train. More details here.
