Another Chicago ‘L’ line is getting a massive revamp, this time for the Chicago Transit Authority’s Blue Line.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and other officials announced a nearly half-billion dollar, four-year renovation plan for the CTA Blue Line’s O’Hare branch on Thursday. The $492 million project, called “Your New Blue,” will tackle track and station improvements between the Grand station in River North and the Cumberland station near O’Hare International airport.
The improvements are expected to shave 10 minutes off travel time between O’Hare and the Loop, according to CBS Chicago. Additionally, WGN reports the project will bring continuous 4G cell service to trains along the O’Hare branch.
