TIF Approved for Bryn Mawr Red Line Station Improvements

March 13, 2013


Enhancements to the CTA’s Bryn Mawr Red Line transit station in Edgewater will be supported with up to $10 million in TIF assistance under a plan approved today by City Council.

The $25 million project will include new lighting, fixtures, and platform surfaces, along with upgrades to the existing station house, tracks, and elevator.

Originally opened in 1908, the station at 1119 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. serves 1.6 million riders annually. Ridership increased by more than five percent between 2010 and 2011.

The balance of project funding is being provided by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
