Orange Line service partially suspended over holiday weekend

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Orange Line service will be partially suspended over Memorial Day weekend as crews work on the structure connecting trains with the Loop.

There will be no train service between the Halsted and Roosevelt stations between 10 p.m. Friday and 4 a.m. Tuesday, the CTA said in a release.

Free bus shuttles will be in place for customers instead, the transit agency said. Riders should allow 15 minutes of extra travel time.

Crews will be working on the 18th Street Connector, a 45-year-old, half-mile stretch of elevated structure that takes Orange Line trains to and from the Loop, the CTA said.

The $25 million project includes track renewal work, painting and waterproofing. Parts of the Orange Line will be closed again the weekend of May 30 to June 2 as work wraps up.
