Weekend work on Blue, Red, Brown lines mess things up a bit

Slow zone work continues on the Blue Line this weekend, with shuttle buses connecting stations closed between Clark/Lake and UIC-Halsted from 10 pm Friday till 4 am Monday.

On the Brown and Red lines, work continues to finish the Fullerton and Belmont station platforms. All trains will board on the east platform. Last weekend crews were installing the new canopy roofs on the west platform.

I was talking last week with Tattler Pub Crawl friends about whether the CTA would finish both station by the Dec. 31 deadline. I reminded them that the CTA has never missed a deadline on this Brown Line expansion project.

So, we’ll see how that goes.
