The Chicago Transit Authority will break ground at the end of this month on its massive Red Line rehab project.

Wednesday, CTA President Forrest Claypool and members of his staff passed out pamphlets to riders at the 95th Street Red Line station.

The CTA plans to shut down stops from Cermak Road to 95th Street to rebuild tracks on the line.

Repairs on the 10-mile stretch are expected to reduce commute times by 20 minutes.
