CTA schedules open houses on Western, Ashland corridors BRT project

CTA riders can explore various options for bus rapid transit (BRT) projects on the 21-mile stretches of both Ashland and Western avenues during three open house meetings June 12-14.

According to an email from the CTA, the purpose of the meetings is to:

  • Introduce the project and the Alternatives Analysis (AA) process. The AA is a study of the potential impacts of the various project options. Each option or “alternative” includes different features and service plans.
  • Provide additional information to the public about the project.
  • Solicit feedback from the community on the project.

During the AA process, the CTA, in partnership with the Chicago Department of Transportation and the Federal Transit Administration, offer various BRT options for the community to weigh in on. They will explain the positive and negative impacts of a variety of Bus Rapid Transit features and service on both Western and Ashland Avenues.

Meeting dates, locations:

  • Tuesday, June 12, at the  7the District Police Station, 1438 W. 63rd Street.

  • They should just post one of those old "your tax money at work" signs at the meeting hall. Obviously, nothing is going to be constructed in the conceivable future on which to hang the sign.

    In fact, I haven't even seen the red white and blue "funded by the FTA and [municipality of ___]" signs lately on any construction.
