(What's this?)

Full Description:
How does this affect my trip?
Board/exit all trains on the Forest Park-bound side of the platform at the Illinois Medical District and Racine stations.

Trains in both directions will operate on the same track between Western (Forest Park branch) and UIC-Halsted, resulting in minor delays.

Allow extra travel time.

Why is service being changed?
We are performing construction to improve the Illinois Medical District station and track maintenance to ensure that trains continue to operate safely along the Blue Line.
