NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Long Island Rail Road riders had a rough start to their day.
A broken rail east of Mineola and a truck striking a LIRR bridge near Merillon Avenue caused massive service disruptions during the morning rush hour Wednesday.
Repairs were completed around 11:30 a.m. and service is now operating on or close to schedule, the LIRR said. At one point, eastbound service on the Port Jefferson, Ronkonkoma and Oyter Bay branches was suspended in both directions.
Many LIRR riders took to Twitter to voice their frustration.
