Subway Riders Stuck on Manhattan Bridge for Half-Hour Amid Signal Problems at DeKalb Avenue

At least one subway train was stuck on the Manhattan Bridge for a half-hour Tuesday evening amid signal problems that caused service changes on multiple lines. 

The signal problems at DeKalb Avenue were first reported by the MTA around 6:45 p.m. 

One passenger told News 4 New York that their train was sitting on the Manhattan Bridge for a half-hour. 

As a result of the signal issues, B and D trains were running with delays. Some southbound B and D trains were running on the F line from West Fourth Street-Washington Square to Second Avenue. Some N trains were running on the D line from 36th Street in Brooklyn to Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue. 

This isn't the first time problems at DeKalb Avenue crippled the B, D, and F lines. In May, power issues at the station led to some trains being stuck for a half-hour or more. Days later, signals problems at the station forced authorities to suspend service on the B line at the height of the morning rush.
