A power outage on the CTA Blue Line's Forest Park branch caused major delays this morning, officials said.

Power was lost on the downtown portion of the Blue Line about 8 a.m., and trains operated on a single track between the LaSalle and Western stations until about 12:10 p.m., according to a CTA spokeswoman.

The CTA still did not have details about what caused the outage as of about 12:45 p.m.
