Daily Trains Affected

24 freight trains

2 Amtrak trains

Communities Benefited:

  • Chicago – Washington Heights and Roseland Community Areas

Benefits

Daily, 24,000 vehicles and more than 700 CTA and Pace buses (95W, 108, 112, 352, 359, and 381) pass through the crossing and face delay when trains cross the roadway. This is also a state designated truck route serving approximately 2,800 trucks daily. This project will reduce roadway congestion and improve safety at this location. It will also eliminate the potential for collisions between vehicles and trains.

This crossing is designated a City of Chicago “911 Critical Crossing.” This is a critical location for emergency services to access communities that have high a frequency of train movements or delays. The grade separation will eliminate this issue.

Scope of Work

The project will consider eliminating the at-grade crossing of 95th Street by two UP railroad tracks. Amtrak also operates on these tracks. This will be accomplished by creating either an overpass or underpass for vehicles using 95th Street at this location.
