Project Description

This project consists of installing additional wayside signals with the "current of traffic" and all new wayside signals against the “current of traffic" along with all new relay houses, coded track circuits, and new power equipment for each relay house to permit bi-directional signaling on all four tracks along the Metra Electric District (MED). The 51st Street Interlocking Plant will be moved to 45th Street and upgraded to new solid state controls with an additional new crossover. The interlocking signals are controlled from Metra's new Consolidated Control Facility (CCF).
