EDGEWATER — So just how much longer will it take to walk to an open Red Line station during the planned reconstruction project?

Well a few dozen pages into the Chicago Transit Authority's massive report on the project, you'll find the answer.

Commuters walking (at 3 mph) from the area directly surrounding the Berwyn station, which will be closed for the entirety of the 3-3½-year project, have it the worst with an increase in walking time of 9 minutes during the first stage of the project.

Commuters living near the Lawrence station, which is also closed for the entirety of the project, also have a long walk to either the Argyle or Wilson stations, adding up to 6 minutes to the walk.

During the second stage of the project, things get worse around Argyle Station, and a little better at Berwyn. Bryn Mawr station will be entirely back to normal at that point.

But for those living near Foster and Winona avenues, there's a silver lining as the CTA opens a temporary station there. Commuters walking to the Red Line can expect a 4-minute improvement on travel time.

Check out the maps below to find out how your commute will be affected. Work on the $1.33 billion project could begin as early as 2017.
