Federal Transit Administration, Chicago Transit Authority, Red Ahead Program

Burns serves as a Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Project Management Oversight Contractor for the Chicago Transit Authority’s proposed Red Line Extension Project.

CTA is proposing a 5.6-mile extension of the Red Line Dan Ryan branch as part of the Red Ahead Program, a comprehensive initiative to modernize and add new service on Chicago’s most-traveled rail line.

The capital project would move the terminus at 95th/Dan Ryan to 130th Street in the city’s Far South Side. Proposed improvements would involve four new Red Line stations, bus and parking facilities, and a new railyard and shop.

Burns is providing oversight as CTA seeks approval to enter the engineering phase as part of the New Starts process of FTA’s Capital Investment Grants Program.
