The Chicago Transit Authority reminds Green Line customers that service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations will be temporarily suspended beginning at the start of service at 1:40 a.m. through 11:40 a.m., on both Saturday, December 20 and Sunday, December 21, due to the construction of the new Cermak-McCormick Place station.
During this time, free bus shuttles will be provided between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations as well as free transfers back into those rail stations. Customers are encouraged to allow extra travel time.
Weather permitting, similar work requiring the temporary suspension of rail service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of January 3-4, with work beginning prior to the start of service (1:40 a.m.) and concluding by 11:40 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
The future Green Line station at Cermak will fill a gap in service between the existing Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations and provide access to rail transit for neighborhood residents and businesses including McCormick Place.
The completed station will feature modern amenities such as elevators, bike racks, state-of-the-art security, enclosed boarding platforms and three entrances. Work on the $50 million construction project began last fall and is managed by the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT).
