Project Description

This project consists of the replacement of the coaxial cable and copper cable used to conduct voice and signal data on the Metra Electric District’s Main Line. The fiber optic cable will connect to the recent installation on the South Chicago Branch and Blue Island Branch and extend to the downtown terminal. Existing cable will be replaced with fiber optic cable. New cable will be hung on the catenary structures in a manner similar to the existing cable.
