Crews were dispatched to remove the tree shortly after 12 a.m. Sunday.
Officials say that the size of the tree and the location where it fell made it more difficult to remove.
Red Line inbound service was restored around noon. However, the Red Line outbound was operating on the Blue Line.
Outbound service on the Red Line was restored just before 8 p.m.
