Green Line trains will operate normally Sunday morning
Construction work requiring the temporary suspension of Green Line service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations, previously scheduled for Sunday, September 7, beginning at the start of service, 1:40 a.m. through 11:40 a.m., has been cancelled. Green Line trains will operate normally during this time.
Work associated with the construction of the new Cermak-McCormick Place station is still scheduled for Saturday morning.
Green Line service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations will be temporarily suspended only on Saturday, September 6, beginning at the start of service, 1:40 a.m., through 11:40 a.m.
During this time, customers can use free bus shuttles that will provide transportation between the two stations, with free transfers back into the affected rail stations.
Customers are encouraged to allow extra travel time.
Similar work requiring the temporary suspension of rail service between the Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations is tentatively scheduled next weekend, September 13-14, 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 fills a major gap in service between the existing Roosevelt and 35th-Bronzeville-IIT stations and will provide much needed access to rapid 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).
