Part of Blue Line closing for construction

August 22, 2008 5:19:00 PM PDT
Some CTA riders may have to catch a bus rather than the train this weekend because of repair work. Blue Line service will be suspended between the Jefferson Park and Irving Park stops starting at 9 p.m. Friday through 3 a.m. Monday.

Crews will be working on the tracks to eliminate slow zones along the blue line. Shuttle buses will be running between the Jefferson Park, Montrose and Irving Park stations.
