RTA to Rebuild East 79th Street Red Line Station

Construction will begin on April 1 on rebuilding the East 79th Street Red Line Station the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority said.

The $10 million project will include installation of new ramps and stairs, an upgraded pedestrian track crossing and a new entry plaza.

The existing station platforms will be replaced with new fiberglass reinforced plastic platforms long enough to accommodate three-car trains.

Other work includes replacement of track and upgrading lighting, signage, cameras and emergency call boxes.

It is RTA’s last key station to be rebuilt in compliance with standards of the Americans With Disabilities Act.
