Project Description

This project will fund the replacement and expansion of the Jackson Substation along the Metra Electric (ME) District. The rectifiers are several decades old, difficult to repair due to lack of spare components, and they have long exceeded their useful life. This project is a prerequisite for additional service capacity on the tracks leading into Van Buren St. Station.
