CTA will put a section of the new southbound platform and track at the Belmont Brown Line station into service at 3 p.m. Friday, July 11. From 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday customers at Belmont will board southbound Red Line trains on the east side of the southbound platform, and Brown and Purple Express trains on the west side of the southbound platform. At 7 p.m. all southbound Brown and Purple Express trains will move to the southbound Red Line track. All southbound riders will board and exit trains on the Red Line side of the platform until three-track operation is completed at the end of the year.
Southbound Brown, Red and Purple Express trains have been limited to one southbound track at Belmont and Fullerton since March 30 while the platforms are being rebuilt and tracks reconfigured to allow room for the installation of elevators at both stations.
