95th/Dan Ryan Station & Terminal Improvements
In fall 2014, construction began on the 95th Street Terminal Improvement Project, a $280 million project (projected cost) that will expand and greatly improve the 95th/Dan Ryan station (the south terminal of the CTA Red Line) and bus terminal areas at the station. The project will bring significant improvements to a station that serves thousands of customers each day and is a vital part of the South Side.
Built in 1969 and designed by architects at the famed Chicago architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the station serves as both a train terminal and an integrated bus terminal. The station is one of CTA’s busiest, with 24-hour Red Line service and over 1,000 CTA and Pace bus trips on a typical weekday. These buses connect Far South Side communities to the CTA rail network. There are roughly 300,000 people who live within walking distance of the CTA bus routes serving the 95th/Dan Ryan Terminal.
The project, one of the largest station reconstructions in CTA’s history, will create a signature station featuring a modern design and myriad customer amenities to improve the overall transit experience. These terminal improvements have created 762 direct and 2,878 indirect jobs and represent a significant investment in Chicago’s South Side. This project is the latest large-scale project to improve the Red Line, CTA’s busiest corridor.
The station will remain open throughout construction. Construction of the south terminal is scheduled to be completed in early 2018, with the north terminal scheduled to be completed in late 2018. READ MORE
