Major Improvements on the Union Pacific North Line

(July 16, 2010) - 
Work will begin in August 2010 on a $185M bridge and retaining wall construction project on the Union Pacific North Line. A total of 22 bridges on the north side of Chicago will be replaced, with the construction split into two phases. During the first phase of the project, 11 bridges will be replaced between Grace Avenue and Balmoral Street. In the second phase, 11 more bridges between Fullerton Avenue and Cornelia Street will be replaced.
 
The project is expected to be completed at the end of 2018.
 
There will be no disruption of service at any of the Union Pacific North Line stations during construction. There will be minor adjustments to the train schedules and travel times will stay the same as the current schedule or increase by a few minutes. The changes in schedule will be effective August 22, 2010.
