Southbound Brown Line Trains Temporarily Rerouted in the Loop on Sunday

March 3, 2011
Beginning at the start of service (approximately 6:45 a.m.) until 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 6, southbound Brown Line trains will be rerouted in the Loop due to maintenance work on the outer Loop structure along Wells and Van Buren.  
 
During this time, southbound (to the Loop) Brown Line trains will be rerouted from the outer Loop track to the inner Loop track, and travel clockwise. Entering the Loop, Brown Line trains will make their first stop at Clark/Lake, then State/Lake, Randolph/Wabash, Madison/Wabash, Adams/Wabash, Harold Washington Library, LaSalle/Van Buren, Quincy/Wells and Washington/Wells, then proceed to the Merchandise Mart station and resume the normal route.
 
Trains operating along the Green, Orange and Pink lines will be unaffected and will operate normally in the Loop. 
 
Customers are advised to allow extra travel time. CTA operators will announce the direction of each train.
