Falling Concrete Delays Metra at CUS

Falling concrete affected Metra operations on Wednesday morning at Chicago Union Station.

Three tracks were closed after chunks of concrete fell on tracks at the south end of the station.

Officials said no one was injured and the falling debris did not land on any platform areas.

Some Metra trains were delayed while workers cleaned up the scene.

A Metra spokesman said Tracks 2, 4 and 6 were closed Wednesday morning for repairs.

The track closures affected Metra’s BNSF, Southwest Service and Heritage Corridor routes.

An Amtrak spokesperson said four Metra trains were delayed while its workers inspected the station, which Amtrak owns.
