The Chicago Transit Authority is reminding customers that the Kimball Brown Line terminal will close for nine days beginning at 2 a.m. Saturday through 4 a.m. Monday, July 22, for a track work project. During that time, all Brown Line trains will start and end service from the Kedzie Brown Line station, about 0.4 miles southeast of the Kimball terminal.

During the project, there will be street and sidewalk closures on Kimball next to the construction site. Pedestrians will need to use the west sidewalk on Kimball between Lawrence and Eastwood avenues. In addition, #82 Kimball buses will be temporarily rerouted to serve the Kedzie station. Northbound #82 buses will operate via Kimball, Montrose, Kedzie to Lawrence and resume the regular route north on Kimball. Southbound #82 buses will travel the reverse route.

Project work is being performed by Kiewit with a total construction budget of approximately $4.6 million, which is funded by a 2009 Regional Transportation Authority grant.
