Beginning this weekend bus stops at the Red Line 95th station terminal will be temporarily relocated to begin rehabilitation work on bus canopy ceilings and the terminal's lighting system. Construction in the bus lanes will begin Friday, May 16 through Friday, May 23 from 9:30 p.m. until 4 a.m. each night.

Customers who normally board buses on the east outer lane on the State Street side of the terminal must board on the inner east lane during these hours. Affected bus routes include the #9 Ashland, #95W West/95th, #108 Halsted/95th and the #112 Vincennes/111th.

Improvements to the 95th terminal and rail station will include the replacement of ceiling tiles and lighting fixtures. Following this work, CTA crews will perform the same work at the 95th station's pedestrian walkway and mezzanine area. Station work is expected to begin this summer.

The Red Line is the busiest line in the CTA's rail system. It extends from the 95th/Dan Ryan terminal on the South Side to the Howard terminal on the North Side. Red Line trains operate seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
