A bomb threat briefly closed the CTA Blue Line Jackson station Wednesday afternoon, but it was reopened before the evening rush.

Trains bypassed the Blue Line stop and the pedway that connects the Blue Line Jackson station to the Red Line Jackson station was closed while police investigated. They both reopened around 3:45 p.m.

Red Line trains were never affected, according to a CTA spokeswoman.
