Project Description

This project will provide design and construction funds for the replacement of the Morgan Street Interlocking on Metra’s Milwaukee C&M subdivision, the signal system infrastructure between Canal Street and A-2 interlocking. The Morgan St. Interlocker and crossings were originally installed in the early 1960’s. The signal system is also affected by the extreme weather conditions common to the Chicago region. It has become extremely difficult in recent years to get parts to make repairs to keep the system operational.
