Chicago Transit Authority Moves On Proposed New Line

The Chicago Transit Authority is to go through final public approval process before announcing the new Circle Line -- a peripheral transit system common in many large transit networks around the world.

"The CTA is promoting the Circle Line as a way to improve connections between all "L" and Metra lines in the city limits so people would not have to travel into the Loop to transfer between them. The path, which is expected to create an outer ring, would be bordered by Pershing Road on the south, Fullerton Avenue on the north, Rockwell Street on the west."

"But the project has raised concerns in some neighborhoods, where people are worried about the demolition of homes and businesses or the impact of constructing new elevated tracks."
