State Senator Kimberly A. Lightford has arranged a Town Hall Meeting on the Eisenhower Expressway and the CTA Blue Line projects. Pete Harmet (Illinois Department of Transportation), Eva-Dina Delgado (Chicago Transit Authority), and Rick Kuner (CAT – Citizens for Appropriate Transportation) will discuss the projects and respond to your questions.
You will have an opportunity to ask questions about proposals to add two lanes, build right-hand side ramps, build wider bridges, and improve the existing CTA Forest Park Branch of the Blue Line and extend it to Mannheim Road. Additional concerns are neighborhood, air and noise, social, environmental justice, and cost impacts. Mitigation of negative environmental impacts is part of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
The Town Hall will be held:
Tuesday April 22, 2014 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM
Proviso Math and Science Academy Auditorium
8601 W. Roosevelt Road (northeast corner of Roosevelt Road and 1st Avenue)
Forest Park, IL
