Project Description

The Rail Facilities State of Good Repair Program focuses on critical improvements at CTA rail yards, which include improvements to the yard infrastructure itself (ties, rail, fasteners, ballast, contact rail etc.) as well as the yard fire suppression systems and lighting. The Des Plaines Yard project will include the reconstruction and reconfiguration of the inner and outer lead tracks, including associated special trackwork. Replacement and reconfiguration of the special trackwork in the east yard storage, including the road crossings to the yard shops will also be completed.
