Train service on CTA’s Blue Line was temporarily suspended Friday morning on the Northwest Side for an unauthorized person on the tracks.
Trains were halted about 7:15 a.m. because of a person walking on the tracks near the Logan Square station, according a service alert from the CTA. Shuttle buses were operating between the California and Montrose stops.
As of 8:04 a.m., train service was resuming with “major delays,” the CTA said. As of 8:39 a.m., normal service was resuming with residual delays.
Crews are working to close up gaps in service left from the earlier disruption due to a person who was on our tracks, pay attention to train signs and announcements on the Blue Line as some trains may be sent express as we work to spread trains out and restore normal service.— cta (@cta) August 17, 2018
