Subway service restored after water main break
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Subway service has been restored with residual delays after a water main break flooded Lower Manhattan streets and shut down the No. 1 line south of Chambers Street.
The 20-inch main broke at the intersection of Murray Street and West Broadway just after 3 a.m. Thursday.
Water flooded the Chambers Street station, causing subway disruptions.
Water was flowing down West Broadway early Thursday morning, but by 6 a.m., officials had the main shut down. Subway service resumed by 8:30 a.m., after the water was pumped from the tracks.
Water service was affected for residents near the intersection where the main broke.
