The CTA is rerouting various trains for construction this weekend. RedEye breaks down your weekend commute.

>> The Red Line: Northbound trains are not stopping at the Addison stop from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., on Saturday and Sunday. The CTA is performing track maintenance there. To get to the Addison stop, riders can take the northbound train to Sheridan and take a southbound train to Addison.

>> The Blue Line: Bus shuttles are replacing trains between the Damen and Western stops on the O'Hare branch from 10 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Monday. Since the Damen stop doesn't have an escalator or elevator, riders with disabilities or large luggage can take a shuttle bus from Clark/Lake, which is accessible for riders with disabilities. Crews are working to ease Blue Line slow zones.

>> The Brown Line: Trains are operating on the same track between the Sedgwick and Fullerton stops on Sunday from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. Crews are trying to ease Brown Line slow zones.

>> The Orange and Pink lines: Trains will operate counterclockwise on the Outer Loop on Saturday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. For the Orange Line, the first stop in the Loop will be Adams/Wabash and the last stop in the Loop will be Harold Washington Library-State/Van Buren.

For the Pink Line, the first stop in the Loop will be Washington/Wells and the last stop in the Loop will be Clark/Lake. The CTA is performing Loop track maintenance.
