    "a lower track will increase ground-level noise."

    I live next to a lowered track. It decreases ground level noise over the wider area (even in close proximity). And since we're comparing projects - the same soundproofing installed around the fly-over (because without it it would increase neighborhood noise) would be placed around the fly-under.

    "With a planned height of 40-45 feet, even 30" is a 6% reduction in height"

    I'll have to file this under: does not apply. The central point is that, with reasonably smart engineering, a 1/2 level drop on the north bound Brown and a 1/2 level rise on the Red Line (as it enters Belmont Station from North) would accommodate all but oversized (height) traffic.

    It's just a more elegant design choice. The 'fly-over' proposal is more wasteful spending piled on top of a giant heap of wasteful spending that's beginning to come home to roost for Chicagoans now.

  • How does it NOT apply? 6% lower -- doesn't really help. And you'll have trucks plowing into the low bridge, as we see on the LSD bridges and other places.

    The 1/2 plus 1/2 doesn't add up, you can't make the trains shorter.
