Skipping Wilson

From the CTA:
Due to work on the main platform at the Wilson Red Line station, northbound trains will temporarily bypass the Wilson station from 10:30 p.m. Friday, July 11 until 4 a.m. Monday, July 14 and during the same hours next weekend Friday, July 18 through Monday, July 21.

While weekend work is underway, northbound customers who want to exit at Wilson should travel one stop north to the Lawrence station and board a southbound train. Northbound customers who want to board at Wilson should board a southbound Red Line train and travel one stop south to Sheridan to board a northbound train. Southbound customers will board and exit the Wilson station on the Purple Express platform.

Normal service at Wilson will resume at 4 a.m. Monday morning.

Might this involve replacement of the outdated Wilson signs?


  1. More than likely, they will be trying to complete the work they started on replacing the floor boards on the platform. Some of them on the far north side of the platform are especially "springy" due to their old age.

  2. Well, Huberman is our Uptown neighbor on Racine; we should go ask him what this is all about! :-)
