Dan Ryan Branch
Reopening of the line is expected no later than Oct. 19.
The CTA said the first week of the Red Line South Reconstruction Project has gone smoothly, but it can go even smoother if riders follow a few suggestions.
When the reconstruction of the Dan Ryan branch of the Red Line begins Sunday, it could have a ripple effect on people who make their livings selling items on the street near CTA stations on the South Side.
The Chicago Transit Authority on Monday night will hold the first in a series of public meetings about a bold plan to rebuild part of the CTA Red Line in a matter of months.
The CTA is planning to shut down the entire Dan Ryan branch of the Red Line for five months next spring to help get rid of the notorious slow zones on the rail system. It’s a problem created by 43 years of wear and tear along one of the most heavily traveled CTA lines in Chicago.
