CTA Brown Line trains are operating with residual delays Saturday morning after a raised bridge over the Chicago River temporarily disrupted service downtown.

Bus shuttle service was provided to transport riders between the Merchandise Mart and Clark and Lake stations during the bridge lift, according to a customer alert from the CTA.

Trains were moving and service was returning to normal as of 10:36 a.m., the CTA said.
