Big Hurt TV: Riding the (re-routed) Red Line to the park

We’ve been hearing about the CTA Red Line construction project for months --like how the closing of the 35th street station across the way from U.S. Cellular Field is going to wreak havoc for fans coming to games the rest of the season. Red Line commuters will now be dropped off at the 35th-Bronzeville-IIT Green Line stop, which is across the Dan Ryan Expressway.

How much will it hurt?

We sent our unofficial transportation reporter, “The Big Hurt” Frank Thomas, to ride the “L” (for the first time in his life), using the route White Sox fans will have to take coming from downtown until the project is completed in October.

I went along for the ride.
