    ULI Chicago YL Small Group Discussion Series
    Up & Over | The Red & Purple Line Modernization Program - Phase One 

    Tuesday, March 9, 2021
    Join ULI Chicago Young Leaders for the first of their Small Group Discussion Series, as we learn about the Red and Purple Line Modernization Program (RPM).  The RPM)Program is rebuilding the century-old Red and Purple lines north of Belmont and is an investment in the next 60-80 years down.
    Phase One, which is now underway, includes building the Red-Purple Bypass, which eliminates a conflict point between the Brown Line and Red and Purple lines, allowing for increased train service and fewer delays. RPM Phase One also includes the Lawrence-Bryn Mawr Modernization Project, which will rebuild the Lawrence, Argyle, Berwyn, and Bryn Mawr stations and track structures. Additionally, a dated track signal system between Howard and Belmont stations will be replaced to improve service reliability.
    We will be joined by representatives from the Chicago Transit Authority and the joint-venture Walsh-Fluor Design Build Team speak to the history of this rail system, the required public outreach and design, and finally some of the construction issues addressed in this transformational project.
