CTA Morse Red Line Station Temporarily Closes Late-Friday Night

June 28, 2012
Station closed for up to six weeks while crews perform much-needed maintenance work
Beginning at 11:59 p.m. Friday, June 29, the Morse Red Line station will be temporarily closed for up to six weeks due to work associated with the Red North Interim Station Improvement project. During this time, crews will perform much needed capital and maintenance work on the Morse stationhouse, platform, viaduct and trackbed.
Alternate Service Options for Morse Customers
While the Morse station is temporarily closed, customers will be directed to use either the nearby Jarvis or Loyola stations, which are both approximately four blocks to the north and south, respectively. Customers can also board a westbound #155 Devon bus from Morse Avenue and travel to the Loyola station.
As an alternate to rail service, there are also several bus service options available within two-blocks east of the Morse station along Sheridan Road (#96 Lunt, #147 Outer Drive Express, #151 Sheridan or #155 Devon) or two-blocks west on Clark (#22 Clark).
Every effort will be made to minimize the impact to customers during this rehabilitation project, including scheduling work that will impact Red Line service to overnight or weekends only.  Any changes to Red Line service will be posted to the CTA website each week.

This project is part of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Building a New Chicago program, which is updating infrastructure that's critical to the city -- and includes improvements that will help ensure that CTA continues to serve customers as effectively as possible.
