CHICAGO (STMW) – Late night Blue Line riders should allow extra travel time early this week as construction will cause boarding changes at three Near North Side stations.

Blue Line trains in both directions will operate on the same track between the Damen and Clark/Lake station from 11 p.m. Sunday until 4 a.m. Monday while crews perform track maintenance, according to the CTA’s website. The work will continue at the same time Monday night into Tuesday morning.

As a result, passengers must board and exit all trains on the O’Hare-bound side of the platform at the Division, Chicago and Grand stations, the CTA said.

Minor delays are expected and passengers are advised to allow extra travel time.
