The CTA halted Brown Line train service on the Near North Side for over an hour Thursday due to a suspicious package.
Chicago's Police Bomb Unit investigated the package, which was near the Sedgwick Station in Old Town around 11:00 a.m., police told the Sun-Times. Meanwhile, Brown Line train service was suspended between the Fullerton and Chicago stations. Police allowed train service resumed across the entire Brown Line shortly after 1 p.m., according to CTA reps:
Service is resuming across whole Brown Line. Expect some residual delays; crews working to get trains evenly spaced and back on schedule.— cta (@cta) June 30, 2016
