Normal Red Line service resumes after person removed from tracks at Clark/Division
The Red Line was running on elevated tracks between Fullerton and Cermak-Chinatown for nearly an hour Sunday evening.
CTA Red Line trains were rerouted to elevated tracks between the Fullerton and Cermak-Chinatown stations for nearly an hour Sunday evening for reports of someone on the tracks near the Clark/Division station on the Near North Side.
The transit authority first rerouted the trains about 6:05 p.m., and announced that normal service was resuming about 7 p.m.
Chicago police said that officers responded to the Clark/Division station, 1200 N. Clark St., for calls of a naked person on the tracks, but that no report was ever filed. Chicago fire officials did not immediately respond to a request for details.
Red Line riders should expect delays as earlier congestion from the service disruption clears, the CTA said.
