CTA RELEASE: CTA Continues to Move Forward with Red Line South Project

Posted to the official CTA website on Tuesday and quoted below are the words of a representative from the Chatham Business Association:
Community meetings will continue throughout the remainder of 2012, providing project updates and the opportunity for additional feedback about the project as it moves forward.
“We have been pleasantly surprised at the significant outreach that CTA has done regarding the Red Line South project, not only to the community-at-large, but to the small business community,” said Melinda Kelly, Executive Director of the Chatham Business Association (CBA). “CBA is encouraged by the serious commitment CTA has shown to getting the word out through its presence at community meetings and the four meet-and-greet sessions it has held between disadvantaged business enterprise subcontractors and potential prime contractors.”
BTW, thanks to the project to close, rebuild and then reopen the Dan Ryan portion of the CTA Red Line there are still job opportunities available. They particularly still need bus drivers for the shuttle buses:
The CTA will host two more job fairs for part-time bus operators needed for the project: August 28 at the National Teachers Academy and September 15 at Kennedy-King College, as well as three upcoming meet-and-greet sessions for contractors interested in the station work component of the project.
Again if you've been to any meetings whether hosted by CTA or meetings within your own respective neighborhood organization please share your thoughts with us or whatever was said at these meetings. Our e-mail is blog @, write on our FB page, or send us a tweet @thesixthward.
