CTA Closes Redline South for Reconstruction

Friday, May 17, 2013


Starting Sunday, May 19, the CTA Red Line (Dan Ryan portion) will be closed for five months, for reconstruction. 

During construction, Red Line trains will continue to serve the South Side, via the Green Line. Red Line trains will share track and stations with Green Line trains between 35th-Bronzeville-IIT and Ashland/63rd. 

The Garfield (55th Street) Green Line station will serve as a main stop for both Red and Green Line trains. 
The station has been improved, in order to accommodate both lines. 

Between Roosevelt and Howard, Red Line trains will stop at their normal subway and 'L' stations.
