In this week’s edition of a morning commute subway crisis, a rail condition on the Manhattan Bridge snarled traffic on the B, D, N and Q lines this morning, leaving commuters confused and platforms packed as trains failed to appear.
As of 10:45 am, B trains remained suspended along the length of their track, from Brighton Beach to Harlem. On the MTA website, passengers were cautioned that D, F, Q and R trains were also running with delays.
Service changes update as of 10:00 am: B train service remains suspended between Brighton Beach and 145 St in both directions. Expect delays on D and Q trains in both directions.

Signal problems at Myrtle Avenue also slowed J and M trains heading into Manhattan and the lines are currently running with delays. Additionally, the A and C lines were slowed by a morning incident at Canal Street, but were back running by 10:30 am.
As usual, commuters took to Twitter to vent about the delays:
