Clark will restore the substation’s envelope and interiors, as well as replace all of the traction power equipment with new gear. The project team also will build a cable bridge to the CTA rail line (the L) tracks with micropiles to support the foundations of the bridge. The scope also includes tuckpointing the building and replacing the doors and roof. The substation will remain active throughout construction.

This is Clark's third substation upgrade project for the Chicago Transit Authority.
