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 DETAILS

Description:

This project continues Metra's ongoing locomotive rehabilitation program. It consists of the life-extending rebuild of F40 locomotives and the mid-life overhaul of MP36 locomotives. A locomotive rehabilitation is less expensive than a purchase, saving approximately $5 million per vehicle. The project may include, but is not limited to, the complete rebuild of a diesel engine, overhaul of the Head End power alternator and gear boxes, and painting and body repair.

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.

The purchase of these cars will allow Metra to retire commuter cars which have reached the end of their useful life and can no longer be rehabilitated. Design activities are ongoing. The first four milestones for payment have been met. Metra has received mock ups and the project is proceeding into intermediate design phase, which is the next milestone. The contractor is in the process of building a car shell facility for the assembly of the rail cars. The first cars are expected to arrive at Metra in October of 2024.

Current Status

The City of Joliet and Pace entered into an Intergovernmental Grant Agreement for this project. The overall Joliet Gateway Terminal project is being managed by the City of Joliet. The City of Joliet prepared 100% design and bid the larger Intermodal Transportation Project, of which the Bus Turnaround Component is a part of. A construction contract was awarded, notice to proceed was issued in February, and construction began in March. Substantial completion and beneficial occupancy for the depot building was achieved in December 2021, after a walk‐through inspection of depot building. The Scott Street pedestrian tunnel was completed in April 2022. Pace bus operations are using the new facilities, but there is additional work remaining including punch list items on building, passenger platforms and site landscaping. All site work is scheduled to be completed by June 15, 2022.
