CTA's Blue Line gets help from L.B. Foster

Written by 

The Rail Products business unit of L.B. Foster Co. is supplying transit rail and associated products for Chicago Transit Authority's Dearborn Subway Project under a $6.5 million contract announced Thursday.

L.B. Foster has begun delivery of 80-foot rail sections, direct fixation fasteners, insulated joints, and contact rail insulators for the long delayed project, which will eliminate slow zones on CTA's Blue Line. The project is scheduled to complete construction in December.
