CTA temporarily closing Polk Street entrance to Harrison Station

Written by jrood

The Polk Street entrance to the Chicago Transit Authority Harrison Red Line station will close temporarily from 11 p.m. Wednesday, September 16 until 4 p.m. Friday, September 18, while crews relocate fare equipment. During this time, customers must use the Harrison station entrance at 608 S. State Street to access the Red Line.

On Friday afternoon, the
Polk Street entrance will return to being an auxiliary entrance and exit for
the station. Customers who do not have a stored value farecard or need to add
value to their fare media will need to enter through the main Harrison station
entrance where fare vending machines are available.

The Polk Street entrance
served as the station’s main entrance for a few months this summer while rehab
work was going on at the Harrison Street entrance.
