The MTA says D train service is suspected in both directions between Dekalb Avenue and 34th Street-Herald Square.

Northbound F trains are running on the E line from West Fourth Street-Washington Square to Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue in Queens.

There is no M service between 36th Street and Queens and Essex Street.

Service on the B train is suspended between Bedford Park Boulevard and Dekalb Avenue. Northbound B trains are running on the Q line between Dekalb and Astoria-Ditmars Boulevard.

In addition, the M2 and M5 buses are being re-routed from Fifth Avenue to Broadway.
