CYA Red & Purple Modernization

Learn more about the Red-Purple Bypass Project coming to Lakeview East

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.

2018 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.
