Southbound Red and Brown Line trains will be temporarily rerouted at Fullerton from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day on Saturday, March 8 and Sunday, March 9, while crews work to eliminate slow zones.

Southbound Red and Brown Line customers at Fullerton will board and exit trains from the northbound Red Line side of the platform. Northbound Red Line customers must board and exit trains from the platform where northbound Brown Line trains berth.

During this time, southbound Brown Line trains will be unable to stop at Wellington station. Southbound customers who wish to exit at Wellington should continue to ride south to Fullerton and then take a northbound train to Wellington. Southbound customers who wish to board at Wellington should take a northbound train to Belmont and board a southbound train.

Customers are asked to allow extra travel time. CTA operators will announce the direction of each train.

Also during this time, #76 Diversey buses will be rerouted near the Brown Line station from 5:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day this weekend due to street closures for the construction work. Buses will operate in both directions via Diversey, Sheffield, Fullerton, Halsted then return to Diversey and resume the regular route.
