CHICAGO — The Blue Line's O'Hare branch will be closed for construction this weekend, potentially delaying Wicker Park Fest travelers as well as those heading to and from the airport.

Free, 24-hour bus shuttles will operate at the Western, California and Logan Square locations to accommodate passengers, but the CTA is warning customers — including those attending Wicker Park Fest — to plan for 15-20 minutes of extra travel time.
From 9 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Monday, the following roads will be also be closed due to the construction:
- 2404-2425 W. Homer St.
- 2446-2459 W. Armitage Ave.
- 2600-2629 W. Francis Place
- 2800-2815 W. Lyndale St.
- 2820-2851 W. Belden St.
From 7 a.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Monday, 2700-2715 W. Prindiville will also be closed.
Late Friday to Monday morning, buses along the #52 Kedzie/California, #56 Milwaukee and #73 Armitage routes will be detoured due to the construction and Wicker Park Fest.
