NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — C line subway service was completely shut down in both directions during the Monday evening rush, due to a broken rail in Brooklyn.

The line was shut down because of the broken rail at the Fulton Street station in Brooklyn, CBS 2 reported.

Normal service had resumed by the mid-evening hours.

The closure affected the entire line, from 168th Street in Washington Heights to Euclid Avenue in East New York, Brooklyn.

Because of the incident, southbound A trains were also affected. They are running on the F line between West 4th Street in Manhattan and Jay Street-Metrotech in Brooklyn, making a turn to stop at Broadway-Lafayette Street instead of proceeding south to Canal Street.

Normal service also has resumed on the A train.
