Chicago Transit Authority Red Line North Stations

Chicago Transit Authority Red Line North

Project Description

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) implemented capital maintenance work at seven rail stations along the north branch of the Red Line (Jarvis, Morse, Granville, Thorndale, Berwyn, Argyle, and Lawrence). The $86 million project included viaduct repairs, platform repairs or replacement, station water proofing, lighting improvements and new station house finishes such as floors, doors, windows and lighting.  GSG was selected to provide safety consulting and lead abatement services for the project.


GSG’s scope of work included adhering to all applicable codes, regulations, health and safety requirements.  Work also included obtaining all permits, performing all testing, training and licensing all personnel, and protection of personnel, public, and adjacent surfaces.  Additional responsibilities included proper and legal disposal of all contaminated materials as well as maintaining all documentation during renovation activities.  Safety oversight elements included fall protection, heavy machinery, demolition hazards, and job hazard analysis.  Safety elements also included inspecting and observing work activities in order to identify and report hazards found and facilitating hazard correction, reviewing safety plans from contractors to ensure adherence to project specifications, and participating in the evaluation of equipment used on CTA property to identify risks and recommend control measures.  The project included live tracks and streets, which mandated additional safety measures to protect the travelling public.  All lead abatement work was done in strict accordance with all applicable Federal, State, County and City regulations, standards and codes governing lead abatement.
