Project Description

This project will provide design and construction funds for large-scale yard improvement projects at the various yards utilized by Metra. Sub-projects may include, but may not be limited to, the improvement or replacement of machines and equipment, upgrades to buildings and crew facilities, and the construction of new equipment and systems. Project activities may include, but are not limited to, HVAC and MEP system upgrades, securing hazardous and flammable materials, fire suppression system improvements, track renewal, new crosswalks, and yard platforms, replacing switch machines and components, and other activities. This project will allow for flexibility to implement high-priority yard improvements between districts that are integral to the continuation of Metra’s safe and reliable operations.
