Listen: South Side Red Line reconstruction discussion on the Barber Shop Show

| No Comments

Red Line riders are on the South Side are in for a painful five months when the line is shut down for a complete overhaul May 19. | Sun-Times file

With the months-long overhaul of the Red Line from Cermak to 95th less than two weeks from starting, May 19, discussion of the work is ramping up.

While the inconvenience of the Wells Street bridge on Brown and Purple Line riders has been well documented, that work only took two weeks, spread over about a month. The entire Red Line south will be down for five months in both directions.

Richard Steele dedicated most of his weekly Barber Shop Show on Friday to discussion the Red Line project - along with some other transportation issues, like Ventra and West Side bus service.
