CTA schedules public meetings for proposed Circle Line

Written by 

The Chicago Transit Authority will hold a third round of public meetings in September to receive input on the proposed Circle Line project. The meetings are part of the Alternatives Analysis study - the first step in pursuing federal funding for major transit projects. The Alternatives Analysis study is designed to examine all the transit options available and determine a Locally Preferred Alternative.

The meetings will present for comment a recommendation for the locally preferred alternative of the Circle Line. The recommendation provides for a long-range plan for the proposed Circle Line and phased project development, initially with improved connectivity through the near west and southwest neighborhoods.
