CTA Red/Purple Line Demolition Underway


Stage A of the Red/Purple Line Modernization Project, which is rebuilding the right of way from Lawrence to Bryn Mawr, is well underway.  The photo above, looking north from Catalpa Avenue, shows one side of the hundred year old embankment being dismantled.

CTA expects Stage A to be completed in 2024.  During construction the normally four track line will be down to two.  Currently there are temporary stations at Argyle and Bryn Mawr, while Lawrence and Berwyn are closed.
