CTA Red Line renovation on track to begin

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The City of Chicago revealed on Wednesday what the Wilson and 95th Street CTA Red Line stations are expected to look like once renovations are complete.

The CTA is gearing up to break ground on the two major projects. Nearly $200 million in contracts are in play to complete the work.

The Wilson project will replace the existing station house, built in 1923, with a newer station that will serve as a new transfer point between the Red and Purple lines. It will also replace some tracking.

The 95th Street/Dan Ryan project will replace the 45-year-old station house with two stations north and south of 95th Street to help with congestion, as it also serves as a bus terminal for CTA and Pace customers.

Construction on both projects is scheduled to begin in the fall.
