As part of the ongoing series of meetings highlighting Red and Purple Line modernization projects, another meeting is scheduled for Tuesday February 7th at the Broadway Armory. The modernizations are just one part of Your Red, a larger CTA enhancement initiative described as “a comprehensive program for maintaining, modernizing, and expanding Chicago’s most-traveled rail line.”

A total of 9.5 miles of track are slated to be overhauled, all the way from Belmont up to Linden. These meetings typically have comprehensive and tactile exhibits on hand. Local residents are encouraged and welcomed to attend this meeting, which runs from 5:30 to 7PM. The Broadway Armory is located at 5917 N. Broadway.
