Capital Projects

Regional Capital Program

Download Capital Dataset

 

Capital programming is a core function of the RTA. RTA and the Service Boards have worked to articulate as well as advance a capital strategy for transit projects in the Chicagoland region.

Priority Projects have been identified by the Service Boards. These priority projects were defined in the Invest in Transit Regional Transit Strategic Plan and are updated on an annual basis. This page shows details about the funding for each priority project.

The 2022-2026 5-Year Regional Capital Program includes over 200 projects that are advancing many of these Priority Projects. The capital projects are shown in the table below, organized by Priority Project and can also be seen in a mapped form on the RTA Capital Projects Dashboard. Each project listing shows the amount of funding programmed in the 2022-2026 Regional Capital Program. Each listing also shows the core requirement(s) and strategic goals that each project helps to address, as defined in the region’s new performance-based capital allocation process.

Notably, the region has committed to dedicating 20% of programmed funds to projects that fulfill the core requirements of improving equity or achieving full accessibility for 2025 and beyond as a part of the new performance-based capital allocation process. 

The Service Boards have met and exceeded the 20% goal for the 2025 and 2026 budget years. Detailed analysis of the core requirements and strategic goals can be found in the Regional Transit Operating Budget and Capital Program

Project Management Oversite (PMO) data is provided for projects that are being actively monitored by the PMO group. Data included current activities, start and end date and budget and schedule status. The following page has a full list of active PMO projects.

+ Third Rail Isolation Demonstration Project Track & Structure Rail $0 $0

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

CTA utilizes an exposed third rail system to provide power to trains on all revenue and non-revenue tracks. The third rail is typically installed on insulator chairs spaced eight feet apart just outside one of the running rails. CTA's rail cars utilize a “gravity shoe” to collect 600 Volts DC from the top surface of the third rail. In station areas, the third rail is typically located on the opposite side of the track from the station platform – this provides some level of protection from a person falling off the platform and coming in contact with the electrified third rail.

+ Rail Welding Track & Structure Rail $0 $0

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

These projects consist of on-site grinding and welding of rail that has been recently installed at various locations. This includes second-hand rail, corrugated rail and in-track welded rail. Rail welding removes mill scale and corrects irregularities from field and plant welding. Corrugation reduces the useful life of the rail and accelerates the deterioration of the rolling stock. Rail welding creates a uniform, continuous rail profile and prevents corrugation.

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

Metra’s track renewal crew will rehabilitate dozens of miles of track along the Milwaukee District West (MD-W) Line in 2022. The project will be the most comprehensive investment in track conditions since Metra acquired the MD-W in 1987. Metra forces will Replace ties, clean or replace ballast, and replace switch components to provide smoother, faster, and safer track conditions. Metra partners with the Canadian Pacific Railroad to fund improvements to particular portions of the MD-W as freight train traffic degrade track conditions more rapidly than Metra trains.

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

Track undercutting provides for the removal of all fouled track ballast, which is then cleaned and returned to the track bed. When the ballast is fouled, the load spreading capability is lost. Undercutting is necessary when the ballast section has become so contaminated that normal ballasting and surfacing will no longer hold a proper track surface. The results of undercutting are a smooth, well-aligned track surface, extended tie and ballast life and reduced ongoing maintenance expense.

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

The Cicero Grade Crossing Enhancements project will be located at the Cicero Pink Line, at the intersection of Cicero Ave and 21st Place . Changes to this grade crossing are a priority for CTA and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) due to several safety incidents at the grade crossing that have put CTA staff and passengers at potential risk. The enhancements to this crossing cover both civil and signal system upgrades. The roadway surfaces and continuous protective rubber boots at South Cicero Avenue have deteriorated over time.
