CTA brown line closures

Yikes, I bet I'll forget about which one is closed, and plan to go somewhere, and then end up walking extra blocks, and missing my appointment. I'm glad I don't have to use the Brown line as much as I used to.

Yikes The Chicago Transit Authority said Friday that higher-than-expected construction costs will require the temporary closing of 15 Brown Line stations when the century-old rail route is overhauled over the next five years. ... The Brown Line station closings, which will range from six weekends at several stations to up to a year at others, would begin after September, said CTA spokeswoman Noelle Gaffney. She said the exact staging of the station closings hasn't yet been coordinated...

Under the CTA plan, the Armitage, Sedgwick and Chicago Avenue stations will remain open on weekdays, but they will close concurrently for up to six weekends.

Brown Line stations at Damen, Montrose, Irving Park, Addison, Paulina, Southport, Wellington and Diversey will be closed temporarily on weekdays and weekends, although no adjacent stations will be closed at the same time, the CTA said.

Two types of closings will go into effect at the Kimball, Kedzie, Francisco and Rockwell stations. The stations will have temporary closings on weekdays and weekends, with no adjacent stations closed simultaneously. In addition, CTA officials said it will be necessary to concurrently close all four stations for up to 10 weekends.
