CTA Brown Line Progress

The CTA BrownLine improvement/ capacity expansion project was a really hot issue heading into this year. Of course, the main controversies surrounded erroneus statements ensuring business owners and commuters that there would be no station shut downs. Let us not forget the cost over-runs and threats to pull federal funding for poor planning... Whoops.

So, how's it going? I live near the Kimball stop and take the Brown Line from time to time for Cub games or going downtown for events. I'll also hop on the Diversey stop from my office to head downtown for closings. Because I drive most of the time, I have not noticed much difference in schedules. In fact, due to the Kedzie and Francisco stop closures, the ride is a little faster heading southeast from Kimball.

Has the work interrupted your routine?
