L Train Service Suspended Due to Water Main Break

January 23, 2019

NEW YORK (AP) — The Metropolitan Transit Authority has suspended L train service between Brooklyn and Manhattan because of a water main break.

The MTA says in a series of tweets that a water main break on the street level between 6th and 8th avenues prompted the service shutdown.

Passengers were told to take other trains or the bus.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently scrapped a plan that would have shuttered the L train for 15 months while crews worked to repair tunnel damage caused by 2012’s Superstorm Sandy. He revealed a last-minute plan in December that would let crews work on the tunnel during nights and weekends. That plan will allow the trains to keep running amid the tunnel repairs.
