Week Ahead In Transit – April 15, 2018

On the ‘L’

  • Red Line trains may be single-tracked between Grand and Cermak-Chinatown overnight.
  • Blue Line trains may be single-tracked between Clark/Lake and Damen.
  • Northbound Brown Line trains may use the Red Line tracks at Belmont late night.

On CTA buses

  • Pace and IDOT are hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony for bus-on-shoulder operation on the Edens at 10am on Monday. Routes 620 and 626 are now allowed to use the right shoulder of the Edens between Foster Avenue and Skokie Highway.
