Just read last week's report on the weekend Blue Line work and say "ditto." Only change the dates and we still have the Blue Line closed from 10 pm Friday till 4 am Monday for slow zone work from Grand to Western. Shuttles will be in place.
I guess they wanted to let the workers take off Memorial Day. And no doubt couldn't pay anymore overtime.
Sunday's Bike the Drive also wreaks havoc with a number of bus routes, of course. Details here on other weekend service changes.
Have a great holiday weekend. I expect to see folks lugging bags of charcoal and cases of beer on the CTA this Friday and over the weekend.
