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.
L train service has resumed between 1 Av and Myrtle Av with extensive delays in both directions after an earlier street-level water main break at Bedford Av.

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.
