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 2023-2027 5-Year Regional Capital Program includes over 300 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 2023-2027 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, 2026 and 2027 budget years. Detailed analysis of the core requirements and strategic goals can be found in the Regional Transit Operating Budget and Capital Program

^Total Project Budget is the project budget being tracked by the RTA PMO Group

Current Status

The design for the project was completed by CTA Engineering in April 2022. Since the buildings are more than 50 years old, coordination with the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) was required. This process has been completed. The Notice to Proceed for the General Contractor was issued in March 2022. It was discovered during field testing that lead and asbestos were present at both buildings. This required a more extensive environmental abatement process than initially expected at both locations. As of the end of October, the abatement process is almost complete. The demolition process plans have been approved. The general contractor will be able to acquire permits once the environmental work is completed. The utility services to both buildings have been disconnected.
