What's going on with our transit systems? Yesterday there was a fire in Washington, DC, which took the life of one commuter, now today New York commuters are going to continue experiencing delays following an early morning fire at an underground construction site near Penn Station.
Tuesday afternoon-evening commute may again be affected after a fire at a construction site in Penn Station caused delays and cancellations during the morning rush, the Long Island Rail Road said.
Officials say a fire at the west end concourse closed three of nine platforms at Penn Station early Tuesday, but added that those platforms are open.
Use caution while on mass transit, report all suspicious packages and allow for additional travel time.
