(CBS) – CTA officials say at least 16 buildings will need to be torn down to make way for elevated bypass tracks at the busy “Clark Junction” that serves the Red, Brown and Purple Lines.
WBBM’s Steve Miller has reaction from one of the areas that would be most affected.
The 3200 block of North Wilton is in the CTA’s demolition bulls-eye.
On the corner of Wilton and School — in the middle of that bullseye — is a 14-unit condo building that’s seven years old.
Steve Johnson has lived there for almost seven years, and they just recently finished some improvements.
“They redid the sidewalk, planted some trees. And just next month we were planning to install some landscaping and a source of water. And we’re not really sure where that’s at anymore,” he says.
