South Loop Red Line riders will have to board the Harrison stop even further
south at Polk Street starting Monday, May 11, when the Harrison entrance closes
so the CTA can replace the escalator.
The work will extend into October. And it will give college and Jones College
Prep kids a little more exercise. Read the CTA release for details about this and how it’s part
of a greater “escalator modernization project.”
Blue Line subway closure. Slow zone work will shut the Blue Line tunnel this weekend from Clark/Lake to
Western/Milwaukee, starting at 10 pm Friday through 4 am Monday, May 11. Bus
shuttles will stop at all stations in between. Needless to say, “customers are
advised to allow extra travel time.”
A short list of bus reroutes and train changes can be found at the weekend
service changes page.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms!
