Service Restored on Oyster Bay Branch of LIRR

Long Island Rail Road service has been restored after being suspended in both directions on the Oyster Bay Branch during the Friday morning rush hour commute due to a tree that fell on the tracks near Glen Cove.

The tree and Long Island Power Authority wires fell west of the Locust Valley station, according to the MTA. The incident reportedly occurred during high winds and rain shortly after 8 a.m.

The transit agency was replacing trains with bus service.


There were also scattered delays throughout the LIRR’s other 10 lines due to weather-related equipment issues.
