Street and sewer construction will close the westbound lanes of Howard between Ridge and Kedzie for about five months, starting Monday, April 10, detouring three CTA bus lines. Eastbound service will not be affected.

#93 North California, #97 Skokie and #204 Dodge buses will use Touhy instead of Howard for westbound trips around the construction zone.

Northbound buses on the #93 North California route will leave California at Touhy, go west to Kedzie and north to Howard on their way to the terminal at Howard/McCormick.

#97 Skokie buses heading west from the Howard Red Line terminal will turn south from Howard at Ridge and go west on Touhy to California before returning to the regular route via California/Dodge to Oakton.

#204 Dodge buses will travel west from the Howard Red Line terminal to Ridge, go south to Touhy and west to Western before proceeding north over the regular route via Western/Asbury, Oakton and Dodge.

For details about all CTA service, call 836-7000 (all local area codes).
