CHICAGO — The Red Line’s Addison Station will be closed this weekend.

The station, 940 W. Addison St., will be closed starting late Friday and won’t open again until late Sunday night, according to a Chicago Transit Authority news release. That closure and others coming later this month are needed as the city modernizes the tracks at the station.

Travelers will still be able to take Red and Purple line trains through the station, but trains won’t drop off or pick up passengers there. Instead, shuttle buses will be at the Addison station to take people to other Red Line stations where they can board trains, CTA officials said.

And riders might face delays since Red and Purple line trains going northbound and southbound will have to share tracks, officials.

The station will be closed again late March 29 through late April 1.

And from Monday, March 11 through March 30, the station will only offer southbound trains. Riders who need to go north of Addison will have to take northbound trains from other stations, like Belmont and Sheridan.

The track construction is part of a six-year project to modernize the Red and Purple lines.
