CTA Recommends Red and Brown Line Customers Allow Extra Travel Time This Weekend

November 2, 2006

Construction work planned for this weekend will require reroutes of northbound Red Line trains. This could cause delays in service so customers are advised to allow extra travel time. Several major construction projects are currently underway on the rail system and CTA is working to minimize the impact on customers while coordinating efforts to accommodate multiple construction crews.

CTA is currently upgrading crossover tracks and signals throughout the Clark Junction corridor, the busy location where Brown, Red and Purple Line trains converge just north of Belmont on the city's North Side. The upgrade to the 100-year-old junction will bring new signals and additional connections between tracks to allow trains to cross over to adjacent tracks.

1 a.m. Saturday, November 4 to 4 a.m. Monday, November 6

Red Line Service
At Fullerton and Belmont, northbound Red Line trains will operate on the same track as northbound Brown Line trains.
Customers will board northbound Red Line trains on the same side of the platform (east) as northbound Brown Line customers.

Southbound Brown and Red Line service is not affected.

Normal northbound Red Line service will resume at 4 a.m. Monday, November 6.
