Northbound Brown Line Trains Unable to Stop at Wellington or Diversey Stations This Weekend

January 26, 2007

Construction work planned for this weekend on the Brown Line will require that northbound trains bypass the Diversey and Wellington stations. This changes a previous notice that would allow customers traveling northbound to board and exit at the Wellington station. Customers are advised to allow extra travel time.

CTA crews will be placing the newly constructed northbound platform and tracks into service at the Fullerton station over the weekend. The new platform and tracks are located east of the current platform and tracks.

1 a.m. Saturday, January 27 to 5 a.m. Monday, January 29
At Fullerton station, northbound Brown Line trains will share the same track with northbound Red Line trains. Northbound Brown Line customers will board on the same side of the platform (west) as northbound Red Line customers.

Northbound Brown Line trains will be unable to stop at the Diversey and Wellington stations during these hours. Northbound customers who wish to exit at these stations should travel to the Belmont station, board a southbound Brown Line train and ride back to Diversey or Wellington.

Northbound customers who want to board at the Diversey and Wellington stations should board a southbound train and travel to Fullerton station to board a northbound Brown Line train.

Southbound service is not affected. Normal northbound Brown Line service will resume at 5 a.m. Monday, January 29.
