ROGERS PARK — Red Line commuters and residents living near the Farwell Avenue electrical substation will have to put up with a couple more weeks of street closures and at least one more weekend of station closures, according to the Chicago Transit Authority.
Northbound trains didn't stop at any stations between Bryn Mawr and Jarvis avenues last weekend, causing significant delays to commuters who had to backtrack from Howard Station to reach their Edgewater or Rogers Park destinations.
Beginning Saturday, southbound trains will skip the Jarvis, Morse and Loyola stations, according to a CTA alert.
Residents can expect construction at the substation from Friday night through early Monday morning, and then again from April 4 to early April 7.
The work will close Glenwood Avenue between Morse Avenue and Pratt Boulevard with some pedestrian and local access, according to a notice sent to residents.
Farwell will also be closed from Greenview Avenue through Glenwood with some local and pedestrian access.
Parking will also be restricted on surrounding streets.
The CTA warned residents of "noise and construction lighting while work is being performed."
