Weekend work scheduled on Blue and Red lines

This weekend’s CTA work on the rail lines is similar to that of last weekend.

Blue Line: Slow zone work will force all trains to one track between Damen and Clark/Lake from 10 pm Friday till 6 am Saturday, and from 10 pm Saturday till 7 am Sunday. Passengers will board and exit all trains on the O’Hare-bound side of the platform at the Division, Chicago and Grand stations.

Red Line: Track maintenance work continues around the Sheridan station. Trains in both direction will board and exit on the outer, Purple Line tracks from 6 am Saturday till 6 pm Sunday.

Track maintenance work will force trains to run on the same track between Roosevelt and Grand from 10 pm Sunday till 4 am Monday. A Red Line train derailed while Thursday morning during the same work conditions.

Have a good, safe weekend, and a nice long one if you’re lucky enough to get King Day as a holiday off.
