Work on the new tracks for the rehabbed Wilson L project is kicking into high gear, with a big traffic diversion starting next week and continuing for a month. CTA tells us:
- There will be a Northbound Broadway Detour starting 10-05-2015 and running through 11-06-2015 (Continuous Closure of 4600-4659 N. Broadway). This is a closure for vehicular traffic. Pedestrians will be able to walk along Broadway on at least one side of the street for the duration of the closure.
- Northbound Broadway will be closed but Southbound Broadway will be open at all times.
- The northbound #36 bus will detour by turning east on Wilson from Broadway, then going north on Sheridan, west on Lawrence, and back to northbound Broadway.
We are also told that Leland will remain blocked at Broadway, possibly until October 30th. If the work finishes ahead of schedule, it could open sooner.
