Red Line trains to bypass North Side stations this weekend

SHARE Red Line trains to bypass North Side stations this weekend

Northbound CTA Red Line trains will bypass several North Side stations this weekend as crews continue track construction for the Purple Express Improvement Project.

Starting at 10 p.m. Friday, Howard-bound Red Line trains will run express between Berwyn and Howard, bypassing the Bryn Mawr, Thorndale, Granville, Loyola, Morse and Jarvis stations, the CTA said in a statement. The bypass will last until 4 a.m. Monday.

Southbound trains will continue to serve all stations throughout the weekend, according to the CTA.

Howard-bound customers at Bryn Mawr, Thorndale, Granville, Loyola, Morse or Jarvis will have to take a southbound train to Berwyn and then transfer to a northbound train, the CTA said. Howard-bound customers who wish to exit at the bypassed stations will need to take the train to Howard and then switch to a southbound train.

The construction project, intended to provide smoother, faster and more reliable Purple Line Express service, is expected to be completed this fall.
