Repair work continues on broken water main

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) - It could take several days to repair a broken water main pipe that flooded a portion of 5th Ave. in Greenwich Village.

The main broke around 1:40 a.m. Wednesday, flooding 5th Ave. between 13th and 14th streets.

Subway service on the B, C, D, E, F and M trains was suspended until late Wednesday morning. Bus service on several lines has been detoured through the area.

Repair crews remain on the scene and are working around the clock to repair the 137 year old pipe.

On Wednesday, students and staff at P.S. 226 at 12 W12th St. were relocated to the HS for Health Professions and Human Service at 345 W15th St. The school had no water service due to the pipe rupture.

The MTA continues to warns bus riders to anticipate the service changes in the area.

(From MTA.info):

M1, M2, M3 and M5 buses are detoured due to water main break on 5 Av between 13 St and 14 St.
 
Detour is as follows:

M1, M2, M3 and M5 Southbound: Via 5 Av, left on 23 St, right on Park Av South into Broadway and regular route.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
