Chicago: Red Line Extension Project approved to enter project development phase

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has approved the Chicago Transit Authority's (CTA) Red Line Extension (RLE) Project to enter the New Starts Project Development phase of the FTA's Capital Investment Grants (CIG) Program.

Entering this phase is a major step in the CTA’s continued commitment to move forward the construction of the RLE project. The CIG program provides partial funding for transit capital investments like RLE. Federal transit law requires transit agencies seeking CIG funding to complete a series of steps over several years, including project development.

“While this year has brought forth a tremendous amount of uncertainty, one thing that remains certain is CTA’s unwavering commitment to advancing the Red Line Extension project,” said CTA President Dorval R. Carter, Jr. “A project of this magnitude requires careful planning and design, which I’m proud to say has been done and will continue every step of the way as we work to advance this transformational project that will benefit the Far South Side and the entire city of Chicago.” ............(more)
