This information was posted on EveryBlock regarding an upcoming meeting to discuss the 95th Red Line terminal reconstruction.

The $240 million reconstruction project for the new 95th Street Red Line station to modernize transit the facility is slated to begin this spring. The project is expected to generate about 700 construction jobs. For more information, go to

Built in 1969, the 95th Street station serves about 20,000 people on an average weekday.

The project will include artwork from internationally recognized artist Theaster Gates, who is holding a community meeting to engage the community, architects and designers about the art project. The meeting:
  • Monday, Feb. 3
    6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
    St. James AME Church
    9256 South Lafayette Ave.
According to the CTA’s website: “Upon completion of construction work, the 95th Street terminal will be the showcase station of the entire CTA system —and the premier multimodal transportation terminal in the region. This artwork—and the community-driven process that will create it—will be a strong complement to the new terminal.”
