Week Ahead In Transit – April 9, 2018

Every Sunday, I’m going to try to post a rundown of what’s ahead for next week in terms of Chicago-area transit, appropriately named Week Ahead In Transit (WAIT). Here’s what’s coming up this week.

  • On the ‘L’:Red Line trains may be single-tracked between Grand and Cermak-Chinatown overnight.
    • Northbound Brown Line trains may use the Red Line tracks at Belmont late night.
  • On CTA buses: A handful of minor reroutes, but nothing too major.
  • On Pace: Some minor reroutes and stop relocations are occurring, but nothing too major.
  • On Metra: The comment period for the upcoming BNSF schedule changes is open through April 15. I whined about it on Diverging Approach earlier this week. Email your comments to Metra at BNSFservice2018@metrarr.com.
    • Modified schedules begin tomorrow (Monday, April 9) on the UP-N line to accommodate for construction. Metra will be replacing a dozen century-old bridges on the North Side of the city and will need to do some single-tracking.
  • Elsewhere:IDOT and the City of Joliet will be hosting a public meeting for the Interstate 55 at Illinois Route 59 Access Project on Wednesday (April 11) night. The meeting will be held in Building U at Joliet Junior College from 4pm to 7pm.
