MTA: Port Washington service restored, buses used on Montauk line

Full service has been restored on the LIRR’s Port Washington Branch, which Sunday morning was operating only one of two tracks due to a broken rail west of the Flushing/Main Street Station.

MTA spokeswoman Sarah Armaghan said the broken rail has been repaired and full service was restored by about 11:40 a.m., with Port Washington Branch trains running on or close to schedule.

Also on Sunday buses are replacing trains between Patchogue and Montauk to accommodate signal modernization work. Westbound buses depart 16 to 34 minutes earlier than normal train times. Eastbound customers should plan for 30 minutes of additional travel time.
