CHICAGO — Service at the two CTA Green Line stations on the Ashland/63rd branch will be shut down for the next four weekends, the agency said.
The first closure is set to go into effect at 10 p.m. Friday, affecting service at the Ashland/63rd and Halsted Green Line stations in Englewood. Free bus shuttles will be provided for those affected by the shutdown.
The closures will allow crews to prepare the tracks for an increased number of trains expected to run on the Green Line when the CTA begins its five-month reconstruction of the southern leg of the Red Line in May.
The stations will be closed from:
- 10 p.m. March 22 to 4 a.m. March 25.
- 10 p.m. March 29 to 4 a.m. April 1
- 10 p.m. April 5 to 4 a.m. April 8
- 10 p.m. April 12 to 4 a.m. April 15
A fifth weekend of work, from 10 p.m. April 19 to 4 a.m. April 22, might be necessary depending on weather conditions during the project.
