Escalator work to shut Harrison entrance for months; other weekend work
South Loop Red Line riders will have to board the Harrison stop even further south at Polk Street starting Monday, May 11, when the Harrison entrance closes so the CTA can replace the escalator.
The work will extend into October. And it will give college and Jones College Prep kids a little more exercise. Read the CTA release for details about this and how it's part of a greater "escalator modernization project."
Blue Line subway closure. Slow zone work will shut the Blue Line tunnel this weekend from Clark/Lake to Western/Milwaukee, starting at 10 pm Friday through 4 am Monday, May 11. Bus shuttles will stop at all stations in between. Needless to say, "customers are advised to allow extra travel time."
A short list of bus reroutes and train changes can be found at the weekend service changes page.
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms!
