LIRR service suspended, delayed during evening rush because of downed power line

NEW YORK — LIRR service was suspended and delayed on several lines Monday during the evening rush because of a downed power line.

The downed power line was on the tracks west of Hicksville. As of 7:35 p.m., LIRR officials said it would take PSE&G several hours to secure and remove the downed power lines. The downed power line was removed around 9:40 p.m. After that is finished, LIRR workers will have to assess for possible track and signal damage.

Service was temporarily suspended on the Ronkonkoma, Huntington/Port Jefferson and Oyster Bay branches, according to the LIRR Twitter account. It was restored on the Oyster Bay line around 8 p.m. Commuters were advised to use the Babylon Branch or Port Washington Branch.
