Project Description

The purpose of this project is to support the expansion of CTA’s diesel-powered snow fighter locomotives via the construction of three sheds, one at each of the following locations: 98th, Midway, and Rosemont Yards to house the four new snow fighter locomotives. The sheds will fully enclose the locomotives. Work at each location provides for a pre-engineered insulated metal building structure, overhead coiling doors, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, fire alarms system, and tie-ins for sewer and electrical service.
