77 Rep Michael LaFargue Discuss Red Line Extension with WTTW

Michael LaFargue, our Riverdale and Roseland 77 representative with Coldwell Banker Realty, discussed the possibility of extending the CTA Red Line south of 95th Street. Discussions for this extension have been happening since the 1950s, but in recent years, it has begun to look like more of a possibility in the upcoming years. “We have disinvestment in our community, which can be assisted with equitable transportation,” said LaFargue to WTTW. Those living on the far South Side experience longer travel times than anyone else in the city, and the hope is that this extension will save up to 20 minutes of travel time per person.
