Impact to CTA Customers

To facilitate construction of the station, existing Madison/Wabash Station will be closed. The adjacent Randolph/Wabash will remain open during construction and will not be removed from service until the new Washington/Wabash Station is opened.  During construction there will be some slow zones. Intermittent track closures will be necessary during select off-peak periods    to reconstruct portions of track structure.  CDOT is working closely with CTA to help minimize the impact of construction on CTA service.
