Station to be closed until early October
Customers who use the Argyle Red Line station are reminded that the station will be temporarily closed for up to six weeks beginning 11:59 p.m. Friday, August 24 until early October, as work associated with the Red North Interim Station Improvement project continues.
Entered into service in 1908 and then rebuilt in 1921, the Argyle station and most of the stations on the North Red Line have only had patchwork repairs over the past 90 years. This temporary closure will allow crews to perform much-need and long overdue maintenance and repairs to the stationhouse and adjacent tracks, viaducts and concession spaces.
Alternate Service Options for Argyle Customers
During the temporary closure of Argyle, customers will be directed to use either the Berwyn or Lawrence stations, which are both approximately four blocks to the north and south, respectively.
As an alternate to rail service, bus service options are available within two-blocks east of the Argyle station along Sheridan Road (#151 Sheridan
) or a half-block west on Broadway (#36 Broadway
Every effort will be made to minimize the impact to customers during the rehabilitation project, including scheduling work that will impact Red Line service to overnight or weekends only. Any changes to Red Line service will be posted to the CTA website each week.
This Red North Interim Improvement project is part of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Building a New Chicago program, which is updating infrastructure that's critical to the city -- and includes improvements that will help ensure that CTA continues to serve customers as effectively as possible.
