NEW YORK — A worrisome, but allegedly not harmful, smell of fuel prompted an investigation that suspended L train service in both directions between Manhattan and Brooklyn Tuesday afternoon, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
A smell on tracks near Graham Av. sparked the suspension between Myrtle-Wyckoff Av in Brooklyn and 8 Av in Manhattan, the MTA stated online around 1:10 p.m.
The air is "currently safe, but we need to correct and resolve the condition before restoring service," the MTA said just before 2 p.m.
Alternative service includes:
- J train or B39 bus service over the Williamsburg Bridge
- A or C train service to G service at Hoyt Schermerhorn, or to Broadway Junction
- E/M train service to G service at Court Sq.
- M14A or M14D bus service on 14 St in Manhattan
Riders can get a courtesy subway or buss pass from station agents.
