NYC Subways May Remain Disrupted Friday Morning

The NYC subway system was bedeviled with problems Thursday night, and they may last into Friday morning.

A manhole fire totally disrupted many subway lines  after 6 p.m., causing mass delays on the A, C and E lines and further disruption on the B, D, F, M and R trains.

On top of the fire, No. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 lines were hit with power outages, CBS reports.

There was also a case where the doors of a 42nd Street shuttle train at Times Square-42nd Street opened onto the tracks instead of the platform. What the heck is going on?

According to an MTA update posted at 12:09 a.m. Friday morning:

Due to ongoing signal problems at W 4 St-Washington Sq, the following service changes are in effect:
Select southbound F are running on the G line from Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av to Bergen St.
Southbound E trains are running on the R line from Queens Plaza to Whitehall St-South Ferry.
A, B, C, D, M and R trains are running with delays in both directions.

Posted at 12:10 a.m.:
Southbound B and D trains are running with delay.
F and M train service has resumed with residual delays.
