There has been little to no communication about it from the CTA, but this weekend starts phase two of the Wells St. bridge replacement project. It’s the same plan as the last time. Brown Line trains won’t be going into the Loop. Purple Lines won’t be leaving Evanston. The Red Line or bus is the only choice for the North Side to get into the Loop.
Even though phase one was a breeze, I predict disaster this time around. At least on Monday. While the CTA didn’t do a great communication job last time, they at least had people out the week before telling riders about the upcoming construction. Nothing this time. Beware!
