November 15, 2013

Green Line trains will operate normally this weekend between Roosevelt and 35th Street

Work associated with the construction of the new Cermak-McCormick Place Green Line station requiring Green Line service to be suspended from 2 a.m. Saturday, November 16 until Monday, November 18, has been canceled and rescheduled for next weekend.

This weekend, Green Line trains will operate normally between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT. 


Temporary Suspension of Green Line Service Next Weekend

Bus shuttles to provide service between Roosevelt, 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations

From 2 a.m. Saturday, November 23 until 4 a.m. Monday, November 25, Green Line service will be temporarily suspended between the 35th-Bronzeville-IIT and Roosevelt stations to allow the CTA to perform track upgrade work that is related to the construction of the new Cermak-McCormick Place Green Line station.

A bus shuttle will operate as a substitute for rail service and operate between the 35th-Bronzeville-IIT station and the Roosevelt Red/Green/Orange station where customers can board Green Line trains to continue their trips or transfer to the elevated Orange Line or Red Line subway.

Customers are advised to allow extra travel time.

Green Line trains will operate normally between the Harlem and Roosevelt stations and between the 35th-Bronzeville-IIT station and the south Green Line terminals of Ashland/63rd and East 63rd/Cottage Grove.

This work is part of a $50 million project, managed by the Chicago Department of Transportation, to construct a new, state of the art rail station that will fill a two-mile gap between the Roosevelt and 35th Street Green Line stations and will provide much needed access to rapid transit for neighborhood residents and businesses, including McCormick Place. The new station is expected to be completed by the end of 2014.
