The CTA plans to build a “bypass” flyover track for the northbound Brown Line train to end the delay caused when Red or Purple Line trains wait for the Brown Line train to cross over their tracks. Presented to the public and the federal government by the CTA with false statements  and intentionally misleading illustrations, this “signature project” add-on to the RPM will waste millions in taxpayer funding and destroy Central Lakeview.
