Water main break in Brooklyn snarls subway service

BROOKLYN — Subway service along the L line has resumed after an early Wednesday water main break near the Bedford Avenue station in Williamsburg suspended service between Brooklyn and Manhattan, according to the MTA.

Just after 7 a.m. The NYCT Subway Twitter account confirmed water was off the tracks and that service had resumed between the two boroughs.

Customers are still urged to take nearby 3, A, C, J, M trains and connecting bus service.

The Twitter account initially posted around 4:30 a.m. that L trains were holding in stations in both directions because of a water condition at the Bedford Avenue station, due to the street-level water main rupture.

Then around 5:10 a.m., the account updated saying L train service was suspended between Union Square in Manhattan and Myrtle Avenue in Brooklyn.
