Weekend CTA service changes: Brown, Orange, Purple, Red lines - helicopter lifts!

The Brown Line will be shut down again Sunday morning between the Merchandise Mart and the Loop for maintenance on the Wells Street Bridge. A bus shuttle will operate between the Mart and Clark/Lake stations.

The CTA’s weekend service alert notes: “Customers may
use Orange, Green and Pink line trains to travel between Clark/Lake and
other Loop stations. A shuttle train will also operate around the Loop,
counterclockwise via the Outer Loop (Brown Line) tracks, for additional
circulation to Loop stations.” That’s between 7 am and 11:30 am Sunday.

Check the CTA site for other changes on the Orange, Purple and Red lines. And buses are being rerouted around the Division Street (Near North) Farmer’s
Market, the Alivio Y Salud Run and Walk, and a helicopter lift at 1620 W. Harrison.

I love those lifts.

Enjoy the weekend.

  • I was just wondering if anyone knows anything about the schedule for the new 5000-series cars on the Green Line. I missed them on the Red, but I might be taking the Green this weekend.
