Some B Trains Rerouted after Morning of Delays, Suspensions

The entire B line was suspended for about an hour for priority track maintenance



    Subway Riders Frustrated as Delays Continue

    It's becoming all too common: the announcements, the advisories, the delays. Getting to and from work seems to getting longer and longer every day, often because the MTA says there are signal problems. Adam Kuperstein sees what's happening underground. (Published Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018)

    Subway commuters should expect more delays and service changes on several lines for the Wednesday morning commute after a day laden with delays, service changes and a track fire at Rockefeller Center.

    The MTA said the delays and service changes along the B/D/F/M line Wednesday  are due to priority track maintenance in between Seventh Avenue-53rd Street and 47-50 streets-Rockefeller Center. Rockefeller Center was also the site of a track fire Wednesday that filled the station's concourse with smoke in the early afternoon.

    There was no B train service in both directions between Bedford Park Boulevard and Brighton Beach, which is the entire line, for about an hour Wednesday morning. But service on the line was restored just before 6:30 a.m.

    B line riders should expect to see some service changes throughout the morning, with some trains being rerouted along the C, F and Q lines in Manhattan.

    D and F trains were also rerouted on Wednesday morning but appeared to be running on their regular routes with some delays by 8:30 a.m.
