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

January 8, 2015

Free bus shuttle service and free transfers back into affected rail stations will be provided

This weekend, Green Line service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations will be temporarily suspended beginning at the start of service at 1:40 a.m. through 11:40 a.m., on Sunday, January 11, to allow crews to continue performing work associated with 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 those rail stations. Customers are encouraged to allow extra travel time.                                              &n​bsp;                        &n​bsp;                    

Weather permitting, similar work requiring the temporary suspension of rail service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations is tentatively scheduled for next weekend, Saturday, January 17 and Sunday, January 18, beginning prior to the start of service (1:40 a.m.) and concluding by 11:40 a.m. each day.

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).
