Saturday Morning Green Line Service Temporarily Suspended between Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT

November 6, 2014

CTA Green Line customers are reminded that service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations will be temporarily suspended the morning of Saturday, November 8, beginning at the start of service, 1:40 a.m., through 11:40 a.m., due to the construction of the new Cermak-McCormick Place station.

During this time, free bus shuttles will be provided between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations as well as free transfers back into the affected rail stations. Customers are encouraged to allow extra travel time.                            &nbs​p;                        &nbs​p;                        &nbs​p;              

Similar work requiring the temporary suspension of rail service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of November 15-16, with work beginning prior to the start of service (1:40 a.m.) and concluding by 11:40 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

The future Green Line station at Cermak will fill a gap in service between the existing Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations and provide access to rail transit for neighborhood residents and businesses including McCormick Place.

The completed station will feature modern amenities such as elevators, bike racks, state-of-the-art security, enclosed boarding platforms and three entrances. Work on the $50 million construction project began last fall and is managed by the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT).
