Body found on Orange Line tracks in Chicago;  Partially suspended train service – NBC Chicago

A body was discovered on the Chicago Transit Authority Orange Line early Monday morning, authorities said.

Police say the body of a man was found in the southbound lanes around 4am in the 2500 block of South Archer.

Further details were not immediately released, but police said an investigation into the death had been opened.

The CTA said Orange Line service had been temporarily suspended between Roosevelt and 35th/Archer “due to a medical emergency on the tracks.”

Here is where the trains ran on the line from Monday morning.

• between Midway and 35th/Archer, and,

• between Roosevelt and the Loop, only.

Shuttles were available between Roosevelt and 35th/Archer, officials said.

“At this time, also consider other service alternatives that may serve your trip, such as nearby bus routes or using buses to other rail lines,” the CTA said in a statement.

The transit agency said it is working to restore service, but commuters should expect delays.
