NEW YORK – LIRR customers can expect a normal Thursday morning commute after a broken rail was fixed.

The broken rail in one of the East River tunnels was completed for repairs early Thursday, MTA says.

There was widespread delays and cancellations at the height of Wednesday evening’s rush hour due to the broken rail, stranding passengers for long periods of time.
