Passengers who take the CTA Blue Line at night should allow extra travel time this week.

Maintenance work on the CTA Blue Line will effect numerous downtown stations.

Trains in both directions will operate on the same track between the LaSalle and Grand stations from 10 p.m. Tuesday until 4 a.m. Wednesday -- and again overnight Wednesday and Thursday.

Passengers must board and exit trains on the Forest Park-bound side of the platform at the Jackson, Monroe, Washington and Clark and Lake stations.
