After being closed since May, the Chicago Transit Authority's (CTA) Yellow Line is slated to resume service Oct. 30, agency officials announced late last week. Track maintenance, inspection, and testing will continue until that time.In May, CTA suspended Yellow Line service following an embankment collapse resulting from construction on Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) property. The restoration of service comes after the design and reconstruction of the embankment by MWRD and its contractor, Walsh Construction, agency officials said.The work included re-fencing the right-of-way area between the tracks and the district's property, rebuilding and stabilizing the soil embankment, reconstructing 1,200 feet of north and southbound Yellow Line tracks atop the embankment, and reconnecting signals and communication lines.
