CTA Red Line trains resume normal service after track issue

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Red Line service resumed normal service after service was rerouted to above-ground tracks Wednesday due to a problem at the Grand Station.

Around 10 a.m. southbound Red Line trains were diverted to elevated tracks between Fullerton Avenue and Cermak-Chinatown, according to a Chicago Transit Authority spokesperson.



Service was rerouted due to a crack in a rail at Grand, the spokesperson said.

Around 1:40 p.m., the CTA announced trains resumed normal service.

The CTA provided bus shuttles between Fullerton and State/Lake during the reroute.
