(CBS) — Nearly four months have passed since the embankment collapsed on the CTA’s Yellow Line, shutting it down. But at least another month of work remains.
It is not immediately obvious to those driving on McCormick Boulevard by the site of the embankment collapse but work is continuing seven days a week. CTA engineers say the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) underground dis-infection plant being built next to the ‘L’ line must be finished first, and that has been contractor Walsh Construction’s emphasis. But an MWRD spokesperson and CTA President Dorval Carter both say it remains on schedule.
