Loop Track Renewal Work - Tower 18

Rail-borne track equipment can be seen in the junction while workers are building track.

 

Workers rebuilt large parts of track and switches at the busiest junction on the 'L' system, known as Tower 18 (located over the intersection of Lake & Wells Streets) as part of the Loop Track Renewal project.

 

On the fourth weekend where the junction was completely out of service for major construction work (as Wells St. Bridge construction was underway just a block north), workers focused on western portions of the junction and some track to the east.
