LOGAN SQUARE — Service between the Blue Line's Logan Station and Western Station will be shut down this weekend as the Chicago Transit Authority begins work improvements on the tracks.
Rail service between Logan and Western stations will stop at 10 p.m. Friday and will remain out of service through 4 a.m. Monday, according to CTA officials.
All three affected stations — Logan, California, and Western — will be open during the rail work, and shuttle buses will be running to pick up and drop passengers at all three stations. The CTA will also provide free transfers back into rail stations for affected passengers.
CTA officials are advising weekend riders to allow extra time for their trips.
Part of the CTA's $492 million "Your New Blue" program, the work will improve the O'Hare Blue Line branch.
The next track closure will run April 4-7 and will affect service between the Western and Damen stations.
