April 23, 2018 - 10:18 am

CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- CTA Pink Line train service was resuming in the Loop after signal problems Monday morning near Clark/Lake halted trains for about four hours.

Starting about 8 a.m., Pink Line trains only operated between 54th and Polk, according to service alerts from the CTA. Normal service was resuming with “significant delays” shortly before noon.

Shuttle buses remained available between Polk and Ashland/Lake as train service resumed, the CTA said.

Trains on the Brown, Orange, Purple and Green lines were also experiencing major delays because of the signal problems, the CTA said. All trains were boarding on the outer tracks, which usually board the Orange and Purple lines.

Riders on the Brown and Green lines were encouraged to use the Red Line as an alternate route, while the No. 62 Archer bus was recommended as an alternative for Orange Line riders, according to the CTA.

Crews were working to restore service, the CTA said.
