The CTA is beginning the second phase of its rehabilitation of the Jarvis El Station this weekend. The work will include the demolition and replacement of the ceiling in the station house, repainting of the station house interior and other rehabilitation work. To expedite completion of the work, the Jarvis El Station will be closed from 1:00 a.m. Saturday to 4:00 a.m. Sunday.
The station house work complements rehabilitation work to the el platform, which was completed last summer. The work included a new canopy and lighting and the repainting of the canopy supports.
The funding for this project came from cost savings on the Green Line reconstruction project. The CTA tells me work will be completed by the end of June.
The work should result in a brighter and cleaner el station for Jarvis el commuters.
