The Granville, Thorndale and Bryn Mawr stations are scheduled to close from 10 p.m. Friday until 4 a.m. Monday, according to the CTA, which says a free shuttle bus will be available between the Loyola and Berwyn stops. The closures are part of the CTA’s major Red and Purple Line Modernization project, a yearslong program that involves rebuilding the Lawrence, Argyle, Berwyn and Bryn Mawr stations, as well as miles of track and structures. A CTA spokesperson said last month that riders should expect shutdowns “most every weekend now through the spring, into the summer.”

The Grand station on the CTA Blue Line is set to be closed from 10 p.m. Friday until 4 a.m. Monday due to construction work to improve the Grand station, according to the CTA, which recommends using the Grand station about half a mile away as an alternative. Shuttle bus service between the Grand and Chicago stations will also be available. The work is part of the CTA’s ongoing Your New Blue program to upgrade outdated stations and speed up service.
