F.H. Paschen celebrated the opening of the North Terminal and the 95th Street Pedestrian Bridge of the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) 95th Street Red Line Station Improvement Project alongside joint venture partner Milhouse Engineering & Construction. A skilled, diverse workforce of over 1200 executed this work, including residents from the local community who will enjoy access to the improved station regularly.
For the 95th Street Station Improvement, F.H. Paschen’s self-perform workforce exceeded all workforce goals and included a 73 percent minority workforce with over 85,000 man-hours worked.
Paschen Milhouse Joint Venture IV on the 95th Street Station Improvement exemplifies Paschen’s continued effective partnership with Milhouse, teaming their staff’s complementary experience and skills to execute this challenging design–build transit project. Milhouse has been an integral part of both the construction and design engineering teams.
Committed to growth and building capacity in diverse and local businesses, Paschen and Milhouse have awarded over 30 percent of this project’s subcontracts to disadvantaged businesses.
Elements of Phase Two included major renovations and additions to the existing North Terminal, widened bus circulation pavement, a widened north bus bridge, bus canopy systems, improved vertical circulation elements in the station, and commuter bridge improvements. A new pedestrian bridge above 95th Street connects the terminals as a means of safe passage for commuters between the bus and rail services.
