NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Service has been restored after a water main break caused problems on the No. 6 subway train.

Service was suspended in both directions between Hunts Point Avenue and 125th Street around 6 a.m. Monday. By about 10:15 a.m., trains were running normally again in both directions.

The water main break happened in the vicinity of 140th Street and Bruckner Boulevard.

The MTA said water had to be pumped out of the stations, the tracks dried and the damage assessed before service could be restored.
