    CTA Blue Line trains are experiencing major delays Wednesday morning due to a power outage near the LaSalle station.

    Trains are running in both directions on the same track between the LaSalle and Western stations, according to the CTA’s website. The power outage is near the LaSalle station.

    Customers should board all trains on the O’Hare-bound side of the platform at all stations between LaSalle and Western, according to the CTA.

    A CTA spokeswoman could not immediately say when normal service is expected to resume.

    Crews are working to restore service as quickly as possible, but commuters should allow extra travel time.
