CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Transit Authority says it’s lowering the speed limit for trains entering the O’Hare International Airport station to 15 mph from 25 mph after a derailment earlier this week.

The CTA also said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that it would move trip switches that stop trains traveling above the speed limit. The agency said it would put the switches farther back so they work earlier.

CTA officials say service between the Rosemont and O’Hare stations could be restored as early as this weekend.

The train derailed early Monday and skidded up an escalator at the station injuring more than 30 people.
