Public meetings on red line south track renewal

This had been advertised on our FB and Worlee had posted this info to his blog so here it is on this blog:
  • Monday, June 18, 2012 South Shore Cultural Center*
    7059 S. South Shore Drive
    Chicago, IL 60649
    Time: 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 21, 2012 Kennedy-King College Gymnasium*
    6343 S. Halsted
    Chicago, IL 60621
    Time: 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.

*All facilities are accessible to people with disabilities.

Of course that isn't to say that people aren't sounding off about this project expected to start in May 2013:
“Folks from Altgeld Gardens could face three-hour trips to get to their jobs downtown,” said rider Michael Payne, in comments to the CTA’s board Wednesday.

He said a bus-dependent plan is fraught with problems in the event of accidents and the inevitable rush-hour traffic tie-ups.
 Also you can check out the Woodlawn Wonder's thoughts on this track repair project. Quick heads up, she's not very happy about it!

Hopefully the CTA will make as many adjustments as possible to ease the frustration of commuting with the Dan Ryan line out of action for 5 months!
