Pedestrian bridge work to impact Metra Electric and South Shore lines this weekend 

CHICAGO (Sept. 14, 2021) – Construction of a pedestrian bridge at 43rd Street in Chicago will shut down a portion of the Metra Electric Line this weekend, Sept. 18-19, requiring some late night and early morning Metra and South Shore trains to be canceled or replaced with free CTA shuttles between the 51st Street and Millennium stations. 

The changes are necessary because the electricity to the overhead wires that power the Metra Electric Line and South Shore trains must be shut off for the bridge work. 

For outbound service, passengers will board buses at Michigan Avenue and Washington Street. For inbound trains, buses will be waiting at the northeast corner of Lake Park Avenue and 51st Street. The shuttle buses will display “RR Stations” as their destinations.
