Upcoming Trackwork near Addison Red Line: Information for Residents, Businesses and Customers:
Addison station, Red Line service and community to be impacted by trackwork March 1-25, 2019

What work is being done and why is it necessary? As part of our ongoing investment to improve rail service, the CTA will make track improvements on the Red Line near Addison to eliminate slow zones and to minimize the potential for existing track conditions to evolve into slow zones during construction that will begin as part of the Red and Purple Modernization (RPM) Phase One Project (see reverse side for more information). The track improvements near Addison station will provide a smoother ride by replacing aging track equipment and will improve service reliability over the long term. The work will be completed ahead of the start of the Cubs baseball season.

Impacts to Addison station and CTA Red Line and Purple Line service
 Red and Purple Line service will continue throughout the work period; occasional delays to service
 Shuttle bus service will be in place at Addison the weekends of March 1-3 (late Friday night through late Sunday night) and March 22-25 (same) because there will be no trains stopping at Addison
 For three weeks (March 3 thru March 25), the Addison station will remain open for southbound Red Line service only
 There will be no northbound service at Addison March 3-25. People riding northbound trains to Addison, or who board northbound trains at Addison, will need to:
→ Use the Sheridan or Belmont stations to board northbound trains.
→ Board a southbound train at Addison, alight at Belmont and cross over to the other platform to board a northbound Red Line train.
→ Note: As Sheridan station is not accessible, customers who require an accessible station will have to use Belmont or Wilson stations to enter, exit or transfer

Impacts to the community
 Work is required to be performed 24/7, including noise from vehicles, tools, horns, material handling and railroad personnel communications
 Increased contractor personnel at and below the CTA structure between Waveland and Newport
 Barricades installed at various locations for resident and contractor safety
 Intermittent street closures and alleys may be partially obstructed
 Curb lanes to be temporarily occupied with contractor equipment as the work progresses
 Occasional sidewalk detours

On Thursday, April 17, 2014 Mayor Emanuel and CTA President Forrest Claypool announced their plan to modernize the CTA’s Red and Purple lines which would completely rebuild the northern portion of the CTA’s Red Line (Belmont Station to Howard Station). This project, known as the Red and Purple Modernization Project (“RPM Project”) would include the construction of a two block long bypass beginning at Belmont separating the northbound Brown Line from the Red and Purple lines to reduce congestion.

This flyover would require 16 buildings in the 44th Ward between Belmont and Addison to be acquired by the CTA for construction and would affect many of the neighboring residences and businesses in our community. I have serious concerns about this project and will work vigilantly with our neighbors to review the full plans and designs for the bypass. My office is coordinating meetings with the CTA, neighbors and businesses that would be affected by this. As soon as additional information becomes available, we will share it with our community.

Sheffield Water Main Replacement Project

In coordination with Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Building a New Chicago infrastructure investment program, and at Alderman Tunney’s Request, I would like to provide you with information about an upcoming water main construction project in your neighborhood.

By late January 2018, Department of Water Management (DWM) and NPL Construction Company crews will begin t install 1,318 feet of new 8-inch water main in N. Sheffield Avenue, from W. Belmont Avenue to W. Roscoe Street. The old water main dates back to 1889, and needs to be replaced. We expect the water main work to be completed by mid March 2018. Restoration will follow in April 2018. Dates may change depending on weather and other factors.
