CTA finishes O'Hare-Rosement Blue Line work early
The CTA has finished slow zone work on the Blue Line between O'Hare and Rosemont four days early.
"With the completion of this work, we now have reduced the number of slow zones on the CTA system to just over
11 percent,down from a high of 22.5 percentlast Fall,” said CTA President Ron Huberman. “Our efforts to eliminate slow zones continue to speed rail service for customers and improve commute times. Speeds in this area now can resume up to 55 milesper hour rather than the 15 milesper hour in place prior to this work.”
I do have to give the CTA lots of credit for finishing most work earlier than planned. The CTA noted that slow zone work between Jefferson Park and Addison will begin in August.
