CTA: Lawrence Red Line Station to temporarily close

Lawrence Red Line station will be temporarily closed from today until Friday, November 30, while crews perform renovation work as part of the $86 million Red North Interim Station Improvement project. The Lawrence station is the sixth of seven stations to be rehabilitated under this program.

To alert customers to the upcoming temporary station closure, CTA service alerts have been posted at rail stations along the north branch of the Red Line. In addition, fliers will be posted and distributed in the surrounding area and reminders will be sent via CTA’s Twitter and Facebook feeds and to subscribers of CTA Updates.

Alternate service options for Lawrence customers: During the six-week closure of the Lawrence station, customers will be directed to use either the Argyle or Wilson stations, which are approximately four blocks north and three blocks south, respectively.

As an alternate to rail service, bus service options are available within two blocks east of the Lawrence station along Sheridan Road (#151 Sheridan), or a half-block west on Broadway (#36 Broadway).

In addition, while the Lawrence station is temporarily closed, #81 Lawrence buses will be rerouted to serve the Wilson station.


Every effort will be made to minimize the impact to customers during the rehabilitation project, including scheduling work that will impact Red Line service to overnight or weekends only. Any changes to Red Line service will be posted to the CTA website each week.
