CTA Line for Southeast Chicago

Chicago, IL

Recently some groups have been calling for Metra to convert to an "L"-like timetable with trains running every 10 or 15 minutes.

But I have another, crazier idea. In 2013, CTA pulled all the Red lines tracks south of Cermak road and re-built the line all the way to 95t St. in 5 months. Cost: $425 million.

What if they simply pulled the Metra tracks and rebuilt it, as they did with the Redline, to be an actual L train connected with rest of the CTA system?

Hyde Park would finally have an L line and this would help economic and construction development in the neighborhood.

Jeff, what would be the advantage of rebuilding the line, over using the existing infrastructure?:
