Major delays on the Brown, Orange and several CTA lines in Chicago – NBC Chicago

Trains on nearly all Chicago Transit Authority lines were experiencing delays Friday morning due to firefighter activity on the downtown tracks.

According to the CTA, major delays were reported to trains on the Brown, Green, Orange, Purple and Pink lines after fire department crews were on the tracks near Adams and Wabash.

The reason for the fire department’s activity remained unclear as of 8 a.m. Friday, but the CTA previously reported that “track conditions” had been issued.

Brown Line trains were also rerouted via the Inner Loop track as crews worked to restore service, the CTA said.

By 8:30 a.m., the transit agency said trains were running with “delays and limited service.”
