Mapping The Future Casualties of The CTA's Red-Purple Bypass

View as Map

When the CTA announced its plan to build an elevated bypass route near the Belmont station a couple of weeks ago, the transportation authority also stated that 16 buildings would have to be demoed to make way for the new Red-Purple Bypass. On Friday, the CTA released the list of buildings and lots that would be affected by the new plan. According the CTA's list, a total of 21 properties would have to be acquired in order to move forward with its ambitious plan. The list includes both residential and commercial properties, all of which are concentrated near the Clark and Roscoe intersection. We've made a comprehensive map which lists every building that will be affected in order to get a better idea of where the (possible) new bypass is going to be located.
