Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

The RTA Access to Transit program has received funding from the Federal Transit Administration through the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program for seven projects that will improve bike and pedestrian access to the regional transit system.  A total of $4.03 million — consisting of roughly $3.2 million in federal funds, $248,000 in local funds and $558,000 in RTA funds — will be invested in sidewalks, crosswalks, bus shelters, signage, covered bike parking, and other capital improvements at transit stations and along bus routes. This marks the fourth round of CMAQ funding for Access to Transit, which has secured more than $13 million in federal, local, and RTA funds for 28 projects in communities throughout the region. To date, construction is complete on eight of these projects, with the rest either under construction or in the design phase.
