Kimball Brown Line station repairs extended until Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Track repair work at the CTA Brown Line's Kimball station that was scheduled to end Monday has been extended to Tuesday morning, the CTA announced Sunday.

The station was closed early Saturday, July 13, to allow crews to replace track and rail system components that are 50 years old and beyond their useful life, the CTA said. Work was originally scheduled to end Monday morning, but station is now scheduled to reopen Tuesday at 4 a.m.

Since the work started, all Brown Line trains have started and ended from the Kedzie station, about four-tenths of a mile southeast of Kimball.

The main entrance on Kedzie Avenue is accessible and should be used by those with mobility devices or those with bicycles, strollers, luggage or other large objects. Customers can also enter and exit the station using the Spaulding Avenue entrance, which is not ADA accessible.

The work will also force street and sidewalk closures on Kimball Avenue adjacent to the construction site. Pedestrians will need to use the east sidewalk between Lawrence and Eastwood. In addition, No. 82 Kimball buses will be rerouted to serve the Kedzie station. Northbound No. 82 buses will operate via Kimball, Montrose, Kedzie to Lawrence; and resume the regular route north on Kimball. Southbound No. 82 buses will travel the reverse route.

Project work is being performed by Kiewit with a total budget of about $4.6 million, which is funded by a 2009 RTA grant.
