CTA Red Line Service Resuming After Unauthorized Person on Tracks

The agency announced the service change just before 6 p.m.

CTA Red Line trains were rerouted to elevated tracks between the Fullerton and Cermak-Chinatown stations for nearly an hour Sunday evening for reports of someone on the tracks near the Clark/Division station on the Near North Side.

The transit authority first rerouted the trains about 6:05 p.m., and announced that normal service was resuming about 7 p.m.

Chicago police said that officers responded to the Clark/Division station, 1200 N. Clark St., for calls of a naked person on the tracks, but that no report was ever filed. Chicago fire officials did not immediately respond to a request for details.

Red Line riders should expect delays as earlier congestion from the service disruption clears, the CTA said.
