Long Island, NY - January 25, 2016 -The MTA Long Island Rail Road will resume service system-wide for Tuesday morning’s rush hour after a concerted effort by thousands of LIRR and state workers cleared the five remaining branches left snow-bound by a weekend blizzard that hit especially hard in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and Brooklyn. Trains will be running again on the Long Beach, Hempstead, Far Rockaway and West Hempstead branches as well as on the Atlantic Branch from Jamaica to Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn.

“We expect to have all segments of all branches operating Tuesday morning, but customers should allow extra travel time and check for the potential for weather-related delays before traveling,” said LIRR President Patrick Nowakowski. “Thousands of Long Island Rail Road employees, aided by forces from the State Department of Transportation, worked continuously to clear the snow, repair equipment and restore our service. I thank them all for a job well done fighting a snowstorm that hit us harder than expected.”
