CTA eyes Red Line extension proposals

The CTA is looking at two possible routes for the long-awaited Red Line extension south from 95th to 130th Street.

One proposal would extend the Red Line tracks down the middle of Halsted Street.

The other involves tracks running along existing freight lines.

The project needs to meet federal transportation and environmental standards before moving forward.

A series of public hearings will be scheduled to discuss the options.
