Three Green Line station will get a CTA spruce-up this weekend, spurring service interruptions at Indiana, 47th and 51st street stations. Instead, shuttle buses will replace rail service between the 35th-Bronzeville-IIT and Garfield stations. “Renew Crews” from the CTA’s Station Renewal program will create “a cleaner, brighter and more appealing station that improves the customer travel experience,” says the CTA.
The work and bus substitution will run from
10 8 p.m. Friday till 4 a.m. Sunday.
Meanwhile, on the North Side Red Line, track and station rehab work will continue during those same hours this weekend. Southbound trains will not stop at Granville, Thorndale, Bryn Mawr, Argyle, or Lawrence stations. For service from these stations, take a Howard-bound train to Loyola and transfer to a 95th-bound train. For service to these stations, take a 95th-bound train to Wilson and transfer to a Howard-bound train.
Finally, the Lawrence station will close at midnight Friday till Nov. 30 for six weeks of rehab under the Red North Station Interim Improvement Project. It will be interesting to see if the CTA can make entrance look any better than the current chain link fence enclosures.
