    Overnight CTA construction will affect Downtown and Near North Side riders of the Red and Blue lines. Passengers should allow extra travel time, the Sun-Times reported.

    Red Line trains in both directions will operate on the same track between the Lake and North/Clybourn stations while crews perform tack maintenance from 11 p.m. until 4 a.m. beginning Monday night and ending Friday morning, according to the CTA’s Web site.

    Passengers must board and exit all trains on the 95th Street-bound side of the platform at the Grand, Chicago and Clark/Division stations, the CTA said.

    On the Blue Line, trains in both directions will operate on the same track between the California and Belmont stations from 1 a.m. Monday until 3:30 a.m. Tuesday while crews perform track maintenance, the CTA said. Passengers must board and exit all trains on the Forest Park-bound side of the platform at the Logan Square station.

    From midnight until 4 a.m. Friday, Blue Line trains in both directions will operate on the same track between the Grand and LaSalle stations while crews upgrade an escalator at the Monroe station, the CTA said. Passengers must board and exit all trains on the O’Hare-bound side of the platform at the Clark/Lake, Washington, Monroe and Jackson stations.

    Minor delays are expected, and passengers should allow extra travel time, the CTA said.
