Yellow Line Extension

Connecting Dempster Station to Old Orchard Road

The Yellow Line Extension Project would extend the transit line from Dempster Station to Old Orchard Road in Skokie.  The CTA completed Alternatives Analysis from 2006-2009 and Environmental Scoping from 2009-2010. The CTA is not studying this project at this time and it is not included in the list of fiscally constrained projects in CMAP’s Go To 2040 Comprehensive Regional Plan. The project documents are available here as a publically available archive.
