Green Line service resumes after being suspended for hours

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

CTA Green Line trains on the South Side were inoperable for about four hours Monday morning because of a track switching problem near the Garfield station.

The track switching problem began about 6:15 a.m. at the 59th Junction, which is between the Garfield and King Drive stations, the CTA said. Service was suspended between Garfield and Ashland/63rd-Cottage, the CTA said.

About 10:30 a.m., some Green Line trains were operating normally, said CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinksi. Some riders were stuck on trains, but it wasn’t immediately known for how long, Hosinksi said.

    It's been months since the last snowflake fell, but Chicago residents are still hitting potholes that make your teeth chatter. Which is why one Southside resident was puzzled when construction crews began repaving a road that virtually no one uses.
