Because crews will be replacing rail bridges at Dempster and Grove streets in Evanston, service on the Purple Line will be suspended from Howard to Davis from 8:30 pm Friday to 4 am Monday.
Bus shuttles will operate as a substitute for rail service making stops adjacent to the Howard, South Blvd., Main, Dempster and Davis stations, according to a CTA news release. The shuttles will depart from the Howard and Davis stations approximately every 5-15 minutes and will operate during the same hours of operation as the Purple Line.
On Sunday only, the CTA will increase the frequency of the shuttles, in anticipation of increased traffic due to the Chicago Pride Parade. The frequency of bus shuttle service along the Purple Line will increase, with buses operating approximately every 5-8 minutes from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Sunday.
The CTA will complete the $15.5 million Purple Line viaduct project later this year.
