Blue Line Forest Park Vision Study to Hold Open House Meeting Tonight, 5pm-9pm @ PMSA

The Forest Park Review is Now Partnering with The Village Free Press

According to the CTA’s website, “The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) has initiated the Blue Line Forest Park Branch Feasibility/Vision Study. The study is being undertaken to determine a long-term planning strategy for the Blue Line Forest Park Branch, with study limits including the entire Blue Line Forest Park Branch from Clinton station to Forest Park station, including the evaluation of potential expansion alternatives proposed by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) through their adjacent I-290 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Study that would continue to Mannheim Road. The study area street boundaries extend from a block east of Clinton station at Canal Street on the east to Mannheim Road on the west, and between Madison Street on the north to Roosevelt Road on the south.

“The next outreach opportunity in the Blue Line Forest Park Vision Study process will be the presentation of conceptual designs for station modernization at the upcoming combined Open House Public Meeting with the I-290 EIS study. Attendees are invited to submit thoughts, comments and suggestions regarding the study and the proposed concepts. In order to provide stakeholders flexibility to attend, the meetings are being held in two locations:
