WICKER PARK — Downtown and Forest Park-bound CTA Blue Line trains will not stop at Division Street from Oct. 21-Nov. 8 due to repair work.
O’Hare-bound trains bypassed the Division Street stop beginning Sept. 23. (This is expected to end Friday night.)
Starting next week, the CTA will offer a free shuttle bus 7-9:30 a.m. weekdays between the Division and the Chicago Avenue CTA Blue Line stops.
The No. 56 Milwaukee Avenue bus also connects the two train stations.

These repairs are part of the CTA’s “Your New Blue” project, which aims to update the Division, Chicago and Grand avenue train stops. These stops were originally constructed in 1951.
Planned improvements at these stops include new kiosks, glazed wall tiles, repainted ceilings, new lighting, new escalator, new furniture and other changes.
