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 also shown in the table below, organized by Priority Project. 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

The new technology will allow recording at a faster frame rate and higher resolution, allowing slowing down the recording to less than real time rates without distortion, blurring, or loss of resolution. In addition, individual frames will not be grainy or distorted. Currently, the DVR system is in full scale installation by Metra Forces. The contractor received Notice‐to‐Proceed in November 2019 for the installation. The installation of passenger area cameras is completed on five passenger cars and currently being installed on the one passenger car.

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

This project funds the long-term railcar replacement program and will purchase up to 500 state-of-the-art railcars. The modern, multilevel railcars will offer a smoother and more comfortable ride. Metra's new railcars will have two entranceways on each side with doors nearly level to the platform which will improve the speed of boarding and deboarding at each station. Boarding will require only one step to enter and faster wheelchair lifts will bridge the slight difference between the station platform and the floor of the railcars.

Current Status

As part of this project, Metra has previously purchased 21 F‐59H1 Locomotives. All 21 Locomotives have been received and accepted. A new requisition was processed for additional new or remanufactured diesel locomotives. The bids have been received and a contractor has been selected for the purchase of a base order of 15 remanufactured diesel locomotives. The Rebuild Illinois funding is allocated for this purchase. The cores for the first 15 locomotives are currently being built. The first locomotive is expected to be delivered in April 2022.

+ Switch Locomotive Procurement Rolling Stock Rail $0 $24,000,000

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

Metra will procure 7 new, cleaner switcher locomotives to retire the current fleet that first went into service at least 50, and as many as, 85 years ago. One all-electric, zero-emission switch locomotive would be the first in Metra’s fleet. Six additional switch locomotives purchased under this project will meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Tier IV standards, the highest emission standards currently in effect.

CTA buses manufactured by Nova (6400 Series) in 2000 have reached the industry standard retirement age of 12 years in 2012 and will be replaced. The 1000 Series New Flyer buses placed into service between 2004‐2007 are on average 13 plus years as of the winter of 2019. A contract with Nova Bus has been executed in April of 2021. CTA received the first production bus in December of 2021 and more are on the way.

The project had some delays due to COVID and supply chain, but were able to retrofit parts. Major items were not impacted and the contract was able to meet their schedule.

CTA is in process of executing the first option for the contract for an additional 100 buses.

Description:

This project consists of installing additional wayside signals with the "current of traffic" and all new wayside signals against the “current of traffic" along with all new relay houses, coded track circuits, and new power equipment for each relay house to permit bi-directional signaling on all four tracks along the Metra Electric District (MED). New signals will be added at 11th Place to control the entrance to the new signal system. The 51st Street Interlocking Plant will be moved to 45th Street and upgraded to new solid state controls with an additional new crossover.

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

This project will provide funds for the replacement of the Seeger Interlocking on Metra’s Union Pacific
Northwest line (MP 18.5). The layout of the control point only allows 30 mph crossover speeds for
commuter trains. The goal of this upgrade, in addition to updating the equipment, would be to increase
the train speeds to 40 mph, and upgrade the switch layouts to meet current railroad design
specification.
The existing signal system is approximately 50 years old and requires replacement due to age and

+ Arlington Park Station-Parking Stations & Passenger Facilities Rail $6,237,000 $6,237,000

PROJECT DETAILS

Description:

Metra intends to exercise a clause in the lease contract to purchase the parking lot area for the Arlington Park station on the Union Pacific Northwest (UP-NW) Line. Metra has leased a 9.3-acre parking lot from the owners of the Arlington Park Racecourse since 2002. It was announced in 2021 that the horse racing track would close, and the property will be sold off. Metra seeks to purchase the land to avoid annual rent costs, which will result in significant savings, and to allow flexibility for long-range planning of the station.

Metra Elevators are outside and exposed to the elements so a more robust elevator desig is required. The team designed 16 of the elevators to 90% design to meet the APTA standards. The team will take the drawings from 90% to 100% using the station design blanket to get it to the final design step.

This will only happen for the first (3) elevators due to funding. These are the Randolph St. and the (2) at Grand & Cicero.
