BROOKLYN — Subway service over the Manhattan Bridge resumed with delays Wednesday morning after a train with mechanical issues temporarily stopped B and D trains from using the bridge, the MTA said.

D and N trains were running with delays as of 8 a.m., but all diverted trains had returned to their normal routes over the bridge, officials said.

The train's mechanical problems started about 6:30 a.m. and prompted the transit authority to run southbound D and N lines locally between DeKalb Avenue and 36th Street, disrupting the rush-hour commute, according to the MTA's website.

Trains on both the D and B lines were temporarily prevented from running between Manhattan and Brooklyn, but inter-borough service resumed about 7:30 a.m., according to the city's Office of Emergency Management.

The MTA advised commuters to allow for additional travel time.
