CTA REBUILDS TRACK UNDER TRAFFIC

The author reports how short sections on track of the Chicago Transit Authority are removed and a front-end loader is used to push the roadbed material toward a locomotive crane. Track is rebuilt with new material, including continuous welded rail. While the area is still excavated, the top bridge surfaces over streets and business establishments are waterproofed.
