CHICAGO — Two CTA Red Line stations on the North Side will be shuttered for the next three years.

As part of the transit agency’s modernization initiative, the century year old Lawrence station in Uptown and the Berwyn station in Edgewater will be removed and rebuilt.

Buses on Lawrence and Foster avenues will be redirected to allow commuters to transfer at the Wilson station in Uptown and the Bryn Mawr station in Edgewater while construction is underway.

Sources did not indicate if COVID restriction would be relaxed for commuters riding buses during rush hour periods.  CTA spoken did say “We have the buses to do the job, we have it under control for the next three years.”
