Argyle Station to Re-open also on Friday Night
The Chicago Transit Authority reminds Red Line customers of the upcoming temporary closure of the Berwyn station beginning 11:59 p.m. Friday, October 5
until mid-November, as work associated with the Red Line North Interim Improvement
Opened around 1916-1917, the Berwyn station was later rebuilt in 1921 – and like most stations on the North Red Line – it has only had patchwork repairs over the past 90 years. This temporary closure will allow crews to perform much-need and long overdue maintenance and repairs to the stationhouse and adjacent tracks, viaducts and concession spaces.
Alternate Service Options for Berwyn Customers
During the six week closure of the Berwyn station, customers will be directed to use either the Bryn Mawr or Argyle stations, which are both approximately five blocks to the north and south, respectively.
Every effort will be made to minimize the impact to customers during the 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. Updates and reminders regarding changes to service are also sent via CTA’s Twitter and Facebook feeds and to subscribers of CTA Updates
Also on Friday evening, the Argyle station will reopen following its six-week closure. Effective at 10 p.m. Friday, Red Line trains will resume making stops in both directions at the Argyle station. The station is the fourth of seven stations to temporarily close and re-open as part of the project.
This Red North Interim Improvement 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.
