NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Subway service on the No. 7 line has been restored after signal problem caused major disruptions Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.
Around 7 p.m. Tuesday, the MTA said a blockage in an air line caused ongoing signal problems between 33 St.-Rawson and 61 St.-Woodside.
Service was restored Wednesday morning after crews spent all night fixing the blockage, the MTA said.
Many commuters were frustrated with the delays.
“Everything else stops,” one straphanger said. “I’ll just have to call in late.”
“A lot of people are going to be late for work,” said another.
The MTA said No. 7 service is now running close to normal, but riders can expect some scattered delays.
The latest issue comes in the middle of a huge undertaking. The MTA is working on a major project to replace the more than 70-year-old signal system.
