Pink and Green Line trains were halted about 8:30 a.m. near the station, 1601 W. Lake St., because of debris on the tracks, according to service alerts from the Chicago Transit Authority.

A CTA spokesman said the debris was removed from the tracks and trains were operating again with residual delays shortly after 9 a.m.
