Kimball Brown Line station closed for construction

The CTA temporarily closed the Kimball Brown Line Station Saturday morning to mark the beginning of a nine day track construction project.

While the Kimball terminal is closed, Brown Line trains now begin and end service from the Kedzie station, approximately four-tenths of a mile away.

The work project includes replacing of deteriorated ties and rails as well as power and signalling systems.

The project costing upwards of $4.5 million dollars replaces 50-year-old components.
