The CTA Purple Line service was restored between Linden and Central after a branch near the tracks was removed Monday afternoon.
As a precaution, CTA shut down service about 1:20 p.m. so they could cut down a branch that threatened to fall over the tracks, according to CTA spokeswoman Tammy Chase.
Service was running normally by 3:30 p.m., the CTA said.
