Green Line Service Temporarily Suspended Saturday and Sunday Mornings between Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT

September 11, 2014

The CTA reminds customers that this weekend Green Line service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations will be temporarily suspended beginning at the start of service, 1:40 a.m., through 11:40 a.m. both Saturday, September 13 and Sunday, September 14, as work associated with the construction of the new Cermak-McCormick Place station continues. 

During this time, free bus shuttles will be provided between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations as well as free transfers back into the affected rail stations.

Customers are encouraged to allow extra travel time each morning.

The future Green Line station at Cermak fills a major gap in service between the existing Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations and will provide much needed access to rapid 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).
