Blue Line Service from Clark/Lake to Division Temporarily Suspended this Weekend for Signal Upgrade

November 13, 2008

Rail service between the Clark/Lake and Division Blue Line subway stations will be temporarily suspended from 9 p.m. Friday, November 14 to 3 a.m. Monday, November 17, in order for crews to install a new signal and train control system. The new systems will help improve the reliability of service by regulating train movement, speed and intervals.

Bus shuttles will operate as a substitute for rail service between the Clark/Lake and Division stations.

Alternate Service for Customers with Disabilities
CTA also will operate an additional bus shuttle because the Division station is not equipped with an elevator and the elevators at the Clark/Lake are temporarily unavailable due to repair work. Southbound customers who need an elevator to access rail service should board the CTA shuttle bus at Western, which then will proceed directly to the accessible Jackson station.

Rather than exiting at Clark/Lake, northbound customers who need an elevator are advised to travel to Jackson where they can board a CTA shuttle bus to the accessible Western station.

Customers should allow extra travel time.
