If you ride Metra's UP West of Northwest Lines, you might want to attend next week's public meetings on proposed expansions of both lines.
Metra wants to increase service on the UP W from 59 to up to 80 trains per day, improve options for reverse commuters and reduce bottlenecks on the line.
The UP NW project would extend service to a new station in Johnsburg and increase the number of trains.
The UP West meetings will be:
July 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Elmhurst City Hall, 209 N. York Street.
July 11, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Geneva City Hall, 22 S. First Street
The UP NW meetings are scheduled for:
July 10, from 6 to 8 p.m., Arlington Heights Memorial Library, 500 N. Dunton Ave
July 12, from 6 to 8 p.m., Crystal Lake Municipal Complex, 100 W. Municipal Complex
