The effects of yesterday morning’s water main break are still being felt along the Central Park West corridor. A few hours ago, the agency announced it was continuing to do all that it can to restore service.
Customers using A, B, C and D train service should expect severe service disruptions during the pm rush hour due to a water main break in the vicinity of 110th Street and Central Park West.
Both B and C train service are suspended from end to end. A train service is suspended between West 145th Street and 59th Street-Columbus Circle and D trains are not running between 161st Street-Yankee Stadium, in the Bronx and 34th Street-Herald Square in Manhattan.
Shuttle trains will serve customers traveling between 205th Street and 161st Street-Yankee Stadium on the Concourse line. Customers can utilize 4 train service to and from 161st Street. Shuttle trains will provide service to A line customers between 207th Street and 168th Street.
Yankee fans leaving this afternoon’s game should utilize 4 train service where extra Manhattan-bound trains have been added terminating at Bowling Green. Metro-North Railroad will also cross honor tickets at the Yankees-E.153rd Street station on trains returning to Harlem-125th Street and Grand Central Terminal.
Work crews are on site at the location of the water main to pump out water covering tracks at stations from 103rd Street to 125th Street along Central Park West and St Nicholas Avenue. Four pumps are currently pumping 6,000 gallons of water a minute out of the system to restore service as soon as possible.
The last line of that notice alone should be able to paint the amount of water that found its way over 22 blocks & 4 subway stations. If you need some visuals, check out yet another shot below:

Hopefully they can get this fixed by the morning rush & if not definitely by the PM rush as I will be riding along that corridor later today.
