Service has been restored on the Long Island Rail Road between Oyster Bay and Locust Valley, following a short interruption due to a downed wire, officials said.

LIRR officials posted a message on Twitter at 2:28 p.m. announcing the resumption of service.

The wire fell on the tracks at about 1:20 p.m. near Locust Valley and service had been suspended in both directions between the stations, according to the MTA.

PSEG crews responded to the scene, officials said.

A few trains were canceled at the stations and a train heading from Oyster Bay toward Jamaica had to reverse due to the downed wires, officials said.

Lingering signal trouble near Locust Valley was resolved by about 3:30 p.m.
