Any one know what happened yesterday in the loop with all the reroutes? Pink line was no where to be found, red line was above ground, and to go from washington/wabash to clinton on a harlem train took 25 minutes. It was chaos yesterday, the conductor was fighting back with people over the PA system.

That first part leads me to believe that there was probably signalling issues between Polk & Clinton on the Pink line, which would've also delayed the Green line, although news sources are turning up nothing. Red Line above ground, headed outbound towards Ashland has been in place for a while. Headed outbound towards Howard, @ThirdRailVision might know more.

I believe work was being done in the West loop, so Pink line was turning at Racine and Congress. SB Red Line running over the top for subway work. 

I believe these are track improvement projects related to the ride-hailing fee.

Service on Red Line only operating between 95th and Belmont.  Yellow Line service suspended.  Purple Line trains operating with delays.  An incident with a train due to switching issues occurred at Howard . Supposedly that train did not derail.

Nowhere on the NSML to turn trains between Belmont & Howard? This is a bad time to have all the artics grounded.

I think that has more to do with the power grid.  There's at least 2 sets of crossovers, at Wilson and near Granville.  The power grid probably extends to Belmont.  That's probably why the trains were turned at Belmont and not further north.
