Switching Problem Interrupts Green Line Service



    Sky 5, NBC Chicago

    Service on the Chicago Transit Authority's Green Line was disrupted Monday morning because of a switching problem.

    No trains were running between the Garfield and Ashland/63rd-Cottage Grove stations. Commuters could use shuttle buses or the Red Line.

    The outage happened shortly after 6 a.m. Via Twitter, the transit agency said service resumed at about 10:30 a.m. with "residual delays."
