It's baaaack! Taste of Chicago is done, so Blue Line service once again is suspended this weekend. But this weekend, the CTA is closing another Loop station -- Clark/Lake.
From 10 p.m. Friday, July 10, until 4 a.m. Monday, July 13, service in the subway between the Western/Milwaukee and Washington stations will be temporarily suspended. Bus shuttles will serve the shuttered stops.
On the Red Line, trains at the Sheridan station will use the outer Purple Line Express tracks from 10 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. each day beginning Tuesday, July 14 through Friday, July 17, while crews replace deteriorated rail ties, tie plates and spikes. The CTA is stepping up this work on the stretch of slow zone track between Sheridan and Wilson.
Also next week, a late night single track will be in
effect for southbound Red Line trains operating between the Roosevelt
and Cermak-Chinatown stations from 11 p.m. each night until 4
a.m. the following morning starting Sunday night,
July 12, through Wednesday
night, July 15.
