CTA Red Purple Modernization Project Updates

Bryn Mawr Ave. Street Closure – THIS WEEKEND
Bryn Mawr Avenue will be closed between Broadway and Winthrop this Friday, July 30, 8 pm through Monday, August 2, 5 am. Crews will need a full closure of the street to perform viaduct demolition of the CTA station. Depending on construction on the street, sidewalk closures under the CTA tracks will alternate between north and south sides of the street. The Bryn Mawr station entrance on W. Bryn Mawr Avenue will remain accessible at all times. Any residents who need to access alleys south of Bryn Mawr Avenue will have to go to Catalpa Avenue and any residents who live north of Bryn Mawr Avenue will have to go to Hollywood Avenue. Detour signage will be placed throughout our ward mainly on Ridge Avenue, Sheridan Road, and Dusable Lake Shore Drive. Click here to read the Construction Activity Notice (CAN)
