Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard by now that the CTA is planning to shut down one track at Belmont and Fullerton as early as Monday.
The number of rush-hour trains will be reduced dramatically, resulting in more crowding and bigger delays until late 2009, when the Brown Line reconstruction project is scheduled to wrap up.
Between the Red, Brown and Purple lines, approximately 185,000 people use the North Side rail corridor that will be hardest hit by three-tracking. Are you one of them?
If so, how do you plan to avoid the gridlock?
The CTA has suggested using alternate bus routes, taking Metra or the Blue Line and timing your trips to avoid peak hours, but is that a reasonable option for you?
