Normal service has been restored across the CTA’s train system after a wintry mix coated the city with ice and freezing rain Tuesday morning, causing delays and stalled trains.

Trains on the Green, Pink and Yellow lines were stalled and delayed after the wintry precipitation caused some ice buildup on rails, according to a statement from the CTA.

“This morning’s unusual, sudden mix of wintry precipitation caused some ice buildup on a handful of locations on our rail system, which happens very rarely on our system,” the statement said.

As of 11 a.m., normal service had been restored on all lines.

“The CTA has been operating sleet-fighting trains to clear tracks, and an extensive bus shuttle service to get customers to their destinations,” according to the statement.

No problems were reported on the Blue, Orange, Purple and Red Lines, according to the CTA.
