Will water main break that affected Bx32 bus will be flooded again?

 

What the heck Water main and rain have in common ?

Water main is a pipe, really big pipe

True, but the thing is I believe they're still working on the water main break, so I don't see how the torrential downpours that we're having can help matters any.

(N) trains were terminating at Whitehall St.

 

(E) trains: via 63rd St, via 6 Av to 2nd Av

 

For the (E), that's already a G.O. due to construction along 53rd Street.

Well, this doesn't help at all:

Due to debris on the tracks at the Beverly Road Station, the following service changes are in effect:

 

There is no (Q) train service in both directions between the Prospect Park Station and the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue Station.

 

There is no (N) train service in both directions between the Whitehall Street-South Ferry Station and the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue Station.

 

There is no (D) train service in both directions between Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street Station and the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue Station.

 

Please expect delays in (D), (N) and (Q) train service at this time.

1318 UPDATE: Debris is cleared at Beverley Rd; downtown (D) trains back to Brighton, no (N)s south of Atlantic Av-Pacific St.

 

Also, (C) trains via express between 59 St-Columbus Circle & World Trade Center, downtown (A) trains via local in Brooklyn.

 

1321 UPDATE: shuttle buses replace (N) trains along Sea Beach.

 

1419 UPDATE: (A) and (C) service back to normal

Man so many watermain breaks in the city!

 

Another:

 

MTA Service Notice

 

Due to the inclement weather, downtown (D) trains are running on the (Q) line between the Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street Station and the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue Station.

 

Please expect delays in train service at this time.

 

Will water main break that affected Bx32 bus will be flooded again?

 

what?

 

And what does this issue have to do with the one in Manhattan? The one in Jerome was in the Bronx. This one is at CANAL, Manhattan and 25th Brooklyn.

It could be due to limited space at Bay Ridge. The last time the (N) ran all the way down there was during the post-Christmas blizzard and that was only during overnight hours.

 

1546 UPDATE:

 

  • downtown (A) via local in Manhattan, downtown ©s via express
  • no (C) trains in Brooklyn, (A)s presumably running local
  • (E) trains back to 2 Av

 

 

1616 UPDATE:

 

  • (A)(C)(E) train service back to normal
  • (D)(N)(Q) service changes remain in effect

 

 

1648 UPDATE: well, so much for back to normal along 8th Avenue

 

  • downtown (E) trains extended to Church Av via Rutgers due to switch problems at the World Trade Ctr
  • no change in (D) and (N) service

 

 

1717 UPDATE:

 

  • (D) and (N) train service is back to normal
  • some downtown (E) trains via (F) line to 2 Av, some trains terminate at Canal St (8th Ave)

I don't get it. The (MTA) claims to spend tons of money on infrastructure improvements i.e weekend service detours and yet we now in recent years get this system meltdown over a mild rainstorm? Imgaine Heaven Forbid if a cat. 1 or higher hurricane hit NYC.

 

Can someone tell me why this is a semi regular situation now with these signal problems especially at the elvated stations?:confused:

This sounds more like a case of where and when the rain hit hardest.

 

Also, how does debris at Beverly Road knock out service on THREE different lines that are on individual sections at that point (as noted below from earlier)?

 

Due to debris on the tracks at the Beverly Road Station, the following service changes are in effect:

 

There is no (Q) train service in both directions between the Prospect Park Station and the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue Station.

 

There is no (N) train service in both directions between the Whitehall Street-South Ferry Station and the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue Station.

 

There is no (D) train service in both directions between Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street Station and the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue Station.

 

Please expect delays in (D), (N) and (Q) train service at this time.

Because of flooding at 36st, 4Av isn't available for service, either.

 

 

There were also problems at 86st which is also why (D) and (N)'s were not running.

I'd hardly call 7 inches in one day a "mild rainstorm".

How many inches was the Aug 8 2007 disaster? That'll give us a sense of scale.

According to the Weather Underground, the August 8, 2007 storm brought 2.5 inches of rain to Central Park, less than half the 5.81 inches reported yesterday.

 

8/8/2007

yesterday

 

A slight correction: the 7" of rain was recorded at JFK Airport yesterday, though that measurement was also more than double the recorded rainfall from 8/8/07.

Then I'd say the MTA did a pretty nice job! Even though it was a weekend, there weren't many major fiascos.
