The $1 billion reconstruction of the CTA Red Line's south branch begins Sunday. Crews will begin shutting down the nine affected stations about 2 a.m. on Sunday.

The 80,000 commuters who use the South Side Red Line will have a couple of alternatives: They can use the green line or CTA shuttle buses added to existing South Side routes.
