Construction begins on Brown/Purple Line slow zones

Work began today on the CTA’s Brown and Purple Lines.

The goal of the work is to to eliminate more than 2 miles of slow zones on  between the Armitage and Merchandise Mart stations.

Rush-hour service will not be affected.   Worl will be done mostly late at night and on weekends.

Trains will operate on a single track during these times, resulting in longer travel times and some occasional changes in boarding locations at stations, officials said.
