Back to normal Monday. Back to normal Monday.
Keep repeating that mantra as you make your final annoying CTA commute Friday on the Red, Brown and Purple lines. CTA workers will complete work this weekend replacing the south segment of the Wells Street Bridge. Then your commute will be back to normal until late Friday, April 26, when the north segment of the bridge will be replaced.
Of course, if you work this weekend, or need to travel to the Loop, your commute still will be disrupted. From the CTA website:
Orange Line: Trains will operate between Midway and Washington/Wells, operating in both directions via Van Buren and Wells.
Green Line: Trains will run in three sections:
- between Harlem/Lake and Clinton,
- between Ashland/63rd–Cottage Grove and Adams/Wabash,
- as a shuttle between Adams/Wabash and Clark/Lake (transfer at Adams/Wabash between shuttle trains and trains to/from 63rd Street).
Pink Line: Trains will operate between 54th/Cermak and Clinton.
Brown Line: Trains will operate between Kimball and Chicago.
Free shuttle buses will operate between Chicago Brown Line, Clark/Lake, Washington/Wells and Clinton to make connections between rail lines.
Allow extra travel time. For more information, visit the Wells Street Bridge Reconstruction page.
