We noticed that Broadway was completely closed off to vehicular traffic between Wilson and Leland at 11pm on Tuesday night. It seems like the work on the new L is now going around the clock. A reader sent in this photo and says,
"I have a clear view of the Wilson Red Line from my apartment window, and wanted to give an update on just how quickly that project is going. It seems like the crew works all night during the week. I just took the attached pic. It's 11 pm on Tuesday and the crew is hard at work! I could probably go without the loud banging sounds or blow horns at night, though..."
We didn't get any notice from CTA about this, so no idea how long the 24/7 work will last. We'll reach out to our CTA contact and see what we can find out.
