The CTA is taking a close look at the Blue Line stretch that runs parallel to the Eisenhower Expressway.

The $1 million study could result in the eventual first major reconstruction of the rail line since it opened 55 years ago.

The trains have several slow zones on the West Side branch and sometimes travel at nearly the same speed as the cars in rush hour traffic on the Ike.
