CHICAGO — Blue Line trains were delayed Monday morning after a car crash temporarily shut down service between the O’Hare and Harlem stops.

Trains were running but with delays as of 7:50 a.m., according to tweets from the CTA. Service between the O’Hare and Harlem stops had been shut down completely for more than an hour due to “an obstruction on the tracks” near Rosemont, according to the CTA.

A car crashed near the Blue Line tracks in the area, according to WGN.

The CTA was providing bus shuttle service between its O’Hare and Harlem stops to help those impacted by the train shutdown and delays.

The agency also suggested people who normally get on the train at Harlem or Cumberland take the 88 or 81W buses to Jefferson Park to get on the Blue Line there.
