CTA Red-Purple Line Modernization Preliminary Engineering

The CTA Red-Purple Line Modernization is the largest capital improvement in the history of the transit organization. The ambitious $2.1B Core Capacity project is designed to increase passenger volume without expanding the footprint. The project involves replacement of tracks and stations between Lawrence and Bryn Mawr, and Brownline tracks in the Lakeview neighborhood and creating a bypass for the Brownline just north of the Belmont station. AltusWorks is the Preservation Architect and Consultant on the design team. The Red-Purple Line corridor passes through 5 historic districts and touches dozens of historic structures. AltusWorks is tasked with providing recommendations on how to best minimize negative impact on these historic resources through coordinating the findings from the environmental impact study and the Federal Preservation Act Section 106 process with the design of the rail system and modern station houses.
