Delays on 8 Subway Lines Slow Evening Commute
MIDTOWN — Several subway lines were delayed heading into the Monday evening rush hour commute.
A small fire at 59th Street and Lexington Avenue briefly halted N, Q and R trains between Manhattan and Queens about 4 p.m. But the flames, which broke out in a northbound track at the station went out by itself, the Fire Department said, enabling service to resume with delays.
L trains were running with delays due to signal problems at Bedford Avenue, according the MTA's website.
The 2 and 3 lines had residual delays after a customer got sick at the Franklin Avenue stop.
And southbound B and D trains also had delays after signal problems at Yankee Stadium, according to the MTA's website.
Commuters were advised to allow for extra travel time.
