CHICAGO — Rehabilitation work is set to begin next week on portions of the Red Line and Orange Line, the Chicago Transit Authority announced Thursday.
Beginning 4 a.m. Monday, April 14, the CTA will begin a $10 million rehab project on the Harrison Red Line station, closing one of the station's Polk Street entrances for 42 days. The entire station will also be closed on five weekends from May through June for the project.
Crews will do structural and cosmetic work, including improving the station's lighting. The $10 million for the project come from tax increment financing through the city's Neighborhoods Now program, according to a CTA statement.
Also next week, track work will begin on the Orange Line between the Halsted and Roosevelt stations. The $25 million project, which is funded through the Neighborhoods Now program and the Illinois Department of Transportation, will begin 10 p.m. Friday, April 18, and run through 4 a.m. Monday, April 21.
Service between the Halsted and Roosevelt stations will also be suspended during an additional four weekends through June. Free shuttle buses will run between the Halsted and Roosevelt stations while crews work on the project.
