LIRR: Trains mostly on time after broken gate near New Hyde Park

The Long Island Rail Road said it was operating on or close to schedule after a broken crossing gate near the New Hyde Park station caused delays during Wednesday’s morning rush hours.

Delays were mostly related to congestion because the broken gate forced trains to operate at slower speeds as they went through New Hyde Park, the LIRR said.

Delays averaged 10 minutes in both directions for a period of about 30 to 40 minutes, starting at about 9 a.m.
