95th Street CTA Station Renovation

95th Street CTA Station Renovation

The 95th/Dan Ryan station is a critical piece of the CTA’s Red Line. It connects Far South Side communities to job centers throughout the region and serves as a transit gateway for the South Side and suburbs.

Originally built in 1969, this station is now one of the CTA's busiest, with 24-hour Red Line service and over 1,000 CTA and Pace bus trips on a typical weekday.There are roughly 300,000 people who live within walking distance of the CTA bus routes serving the 95th/Dan Ryan Terminal. 

Improvements were needed to better serve existing high volume of riders, provide safer passenger access to buses and the train station, and expand passenger facilities that will lead to a modern, safe and pedestrian-friendly transit center with fewer delays and shorter travel times.

The new and expanded terminal offers more space and better amenities, and improve the walking flow of passengers. Improvements include the following:

  • New station building with bright, airy spaces and clear sightlines
  • Expanded platforms to provide more room and easier flow of passengers
  • Station largely enclosed in glass for maximum light and protection from the elements
  • Wider bus lanes and increased spacing between bus bays to reduce congestion
  • Wider sidewalks and waiting areas in bus terminal for increased passenger comfort and safety
  • Sound panels at platform level to provide a more comfortable, less noisy space
  • Additional escalators and elevators
  • Additional space in front of ticket vending machines and fare gates

CCC’s Resident Engineer/Construction Manager supervised the construction process from sub-contractor selection stage through final construction. Responsibilties included the following:

  • Overseeing the construction of major structural support and retaining walls as well as the various design phases
  • Construction inspection services
  • Providing traffic controls that allow vehicular traffic to move cautiously and safely through the construction zone.

Dan Ryan and 95th Street Red Line Reconstruction Design-Build had a construction cost of $280 million. The work also included extensive track removal and replacement work.
