This weekend, Pink Line service will be suspended in the Loop, and Green Line service will be suspended between the Clinton and Clark/Lake stops. Both service changes are due to maintenance work on the Lake Street Bridge.

During the service disruption, slated to last from 5 a.m. on Saturday through 4 a.m. on Monday, the Pink Line will run continue to run both ways between 54th/Cermak and Clinton—it just won't run in the Loop. However, a shuttle train will be operating counterclockwise around the Loop, making all stops.

As for the Green Line, the CTA explains it best:

Green Line trains will continue to operate in both directions, but in two sections: between Harlem/Lake and Clinton, and also between Ashland/63rd-Cottage Grove and the Loop. In the Loop, Green Line trains will follow Orange Line trains clockwise, first stopping at Harold Washington Library before continuing on to Ashland/63rd and Cottage Grove.

To counterbalance the Green Line service change, free shuttle buses will be ferrying riders between the southeast corner of LaSalle, near the Clark/Lake stop, and the west side of Clinton Street just south of Lake Street, near the Clinton stop.

Good luck out there!
