Construction update: New subway entrances for Grand Red Line

As the Grand Red Line construction project enters Stage 2, riders will enter and exit at one new corner, as another is shuttered. But for the busy July 3-5 holiday weekend, three of the four entrances will serve the madding crowd.

However, don't get too used to three of the four entrances being open for the first time in a year. On Monday, July 6, the northwest entrance closes, and we're back to using the old northeast entrance. But the new southeast entrance will be put into service.

As I reported earlier, in Stage 2, two new staircases to the north- and southbound
platforms will open. The current southbound stair and escalator from
mezzanine to platform will be temporarily closed. Both will be
renovated/replaced and reopen at the end of Phase 2.
