Blue Line track issue

Blue Line track issue (January 22, 2013)

Blue Line trains have resumed their normal schedules this morning after emergency repairs overnight caused delays for several hours.

A northbound train experienced problems with the track shortly after 11:30 p.m. Monday, CTA spokesman Steve Mayberry said.

Bus and train shuttles were running until 1:30 a.m., when train service between Cumberland and Jefferson Park stations was restored along a single track.

Trains continued to use a single track between the two stations as maintenance crews repaired the problem, and by 6 a.m. normal service had been restored.
