Northbound Red Line Trains Temporarily Bypassing the Wilson Station this Weekend

December 4, 2008

Due to work on the main platform at the Wilson Red Line station, northbound trains will temporarily bypass the Wilson station from 8 p.m. Friday, December 5 until 4 a.m. Monday, December 8.

While weekend work is under way, northbound customers who want to exit at Wilson should travel one stop north to the Lawrence station and board a southbound train. Northbound customers who want to board at Wilson should board a southbound Red Line train and travel one stop south to Sheridan to board a northbound train.
Southbound Red Line trains will be rerouted to the Purple Express tracks at Wilson and Sheridan. Southbound customers at both stations must board and exit Red Line trains from the Purple Express platforms, the western-most platform which is normally not in use. 
Also during this time, the auxiliary station entrance along Wilson Avenue will be closed. Customers will need to enter and exit the Wilson station from the Broadway Street entrance.
Normal service at Wilson will resume at 4 a.m. Monday morning.
