A busy weekend for fests, construction
News and notes for a busy weekend of commuting:
- Work scheduled this weekend on the Brown Line will result in a 12-hour closure of both the Kimball and Francisco stations from 3 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 25, says the CTA.
CTA is currently working to upgrade crossover tracks and signals throughout the Clark Junction corridor, the busy location where Brown, Red and Purple Line trains converge just north of Belmont on the City’s North Side. The upgrade to the 100-year-old junction will bring new signals and additional connections between tracks to allow trains to cross over to adjacent tracks.
The Gay Pride Parade will mess things up this weekend, so try to avoid the Broadway and Halsted buses.
The first-ever Clark Street Festival will detour buses on Clark Sunday between Pratt and Touhy.
And Hyde Park gets slimmed-down buses that can traverse the tight streets in that neighborhood.
