Subway delays caused by ‘rail condition’ on bridge: MTA

A “rail condition” on the Manhattan Bridge caused delays on several subway lines Tuesday morning, the MTA said.

The agency first alerted passengers to “an investigation” on the bridge, causing delays and service changes on B and D trains, at about 8:25 a.m.

Delays then spread to F, Q and R trains as well.

A little over an hour later, the MTA said there was a “rail condition” that was the cause of the delays. The agency did not immediately respond to a request to clarify what the rail condition was.

“Our crews are on site working to fix the rail condition so that we can bring back regular (service) soon,” the MTA said in a tweet.

As of 10 a.m., there was no B train service between Brighton Beach and 145th Street, and there were lingering delays on D, F, Q and R trains.
