A white powdery substance that caused the Addison CTA station to be evacuated Thursday morning was found not to be dangerous, Chicago Police said.

The powdery substance was reported on a southbound Red Line train, a CTA spokeswoman said. 

As a hazmat team investigated the powder, Addison Street was closed to cars from Sheffield to Fremont, though school and CTA buses were being allowed through.

Everyone was taken off the train, officials said, and the station was closed down.

Trains bypassed the station, according to the CTA, and bus service was established between Sheridan and Belmont.
