CTA: O'Hare-bound Blue Line trains delayed during evening rush

During the morning rush hour, Blue Line service was disrupted by debris on the tracks.

CTA Blue Line service experienced "significant" delays during the Monday evening rush hour.

The CTA said O'Hare-bound Blue Line trains were operating with delays due to mechanical problems on a train near Austin. Some trains ran express to close gaps.

During the morning rush hour, Blue Line service was disrupted by debris on the tracks.

Service was temporarily halted around 8 a.m. Monday after a tire flew onto the tracks after a nearby car crash. By 9:30 a.m., Blue Line trains were operating with residual delays.

Previously, trains were operating in two sections - between O'Hare and Harlem and between Jefferson Park and Forest Park. Shuttle buses provided connecting service between the Harlem and Jefferson Park stops.
