LIRR experiences delays after cable fire

LIRR customers heading home from Manhattan should anticipate canceled trains and delays after a cable fire in one of the East River tunnels.



Westbound LIRR service has been restored between Jamaica to Penn Station.



However, delays are still being reported along the Port Washington branch from Woodside to Penn Station.



NYC Transit will cross-honor LIRR fares for the E subway at Jamaica, Kew Gardens and Forest Hills, the 7 subway at Woodside and the 2 and 3 subways at Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn.
