The train is stopped near the Harold Washington Library, causing trains on other lines that cirle the Loop to stop as well. CTA is advising commuters to consider other transit alternatives.
Crews continue to work as quickly as possible to resolve the issue with the train that's standing near HW Library. Unfortunately, the train's position is preventing other lines from moving and we encourage you to seek alternatives if available. https://t.co/1L69XK5CEg
