Temporary Closure of Jarvis Red Line Station Begins Thursday

October 29, 2012
Last station to close under the Red North Station Interim Improvement project
 
Jarvis, the seventh and final station to undergo rehabilitation work as part of the Red North Station Interim Improvement project will close at 10 p.m. Thursday, November 1, and is scheduled to re-open in mid-December. The station is being closed approximately one week earlier than originally planned to allow crews to perform work with fewer interruptions due to upcoming holidays and potential cold weather impacts.
 
To alert customers to the upcoming temporary station closure, CTA service alerts have been posted at rail stations along the north branch of the Red Line. In addition, flyers have been posted and distributed in the surrounding area and reminders will be sent via CTA’s Twitter and Facebook feeds and to subscribers of CTA Updates.
 
Information specialists will be available at the Jarvis station to answer questions and provide service information during the morning and evening rush periods this week – Monday, October 29 through Thursday, November 1.
 
Alternate Service Options for Jarvis Customers
During the six week closure of the Jarvis station, customers will be directed to use either the Howard (approximately four blocks north) or Morse stations (approximately seven blocks south).
 
As an alternate to rail service, there are also bus service options available within two blocks east of the Jarvis station along Sheridan Road (#147 Outer Drive Express) or two blocks west on Clark (#22 Clark).
 
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.
