Project Description

Converting the tie stations into substations and installing a new substation will
increase capacity and reliability on the Metra Electric District. Construction was
performed moving from north to south. Construction was completed at 31st
Street and 51st Street. Design for 95th Street and Riverdale are 100% complete.
Bids were received and contract was awarded for both 95th St. and Riverdale
substation construction. The contractor was issued an NTP in October 2018 and
reached substantial completion this reporting period. This will be the final update
on this project.
