UPDATE: CTA Yellow Line likely halted for ‘several days’ due to erosion

(SKOKIE) Service on the CTA Yellow Line could be suspended for several days after an embankment gave way near the tracks late Sunday.

The issue was first reported about 10:15 p.m. Sunday, officials said.

An embankment underneath the tracks near McCormick Boulevard began eroding during a construction project that is not being run by the CTA, rendering the tracks unstable, agency spokeswoman Tammy Chase said.

The line, which runs between Chicago and Skokie, has been halted and will likely be suspended for several days, according to village officials.

A portion of McCormick Boulevard is also closed between Oaktown and Howard streets until further notice, the village said.

Passengers can take shuttle buses through the affected area, or use the No. 97 Skokie bus as an alternative, according to the CTA website.
