Drivers this morning probably had to deal with some horrible conditions with all the fog in the area, but luckily it has since cleared, giving way to clouds and rain for the evening.
Luckily for the non-drivers, almost all subway lines are running normally this afternoon, though a customer requiring medical assistance at 3rd Ave.-149th St. is causing delays on uptown 2 trains.
Most Long Island Railroad trains are also running smoothly, though the 3:07 p.m. train from Penn Station due in Ronkonkoma at 4:25 p.m. is running 10 minutes late due to scheduled track work.
Most Metro-North Railroad trains are running normally, but as usual, buses are still substituting for trains on the Port Jervis line between Port Jervis and Harriman between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. until November 9.
City buses are again a nuisance this afternoon.
M86 buses are detoured due to Con Ed construction at 86th St. and York Ave., and M20 buses are detoured due to construction on 66th St. and Central Park West. M96 buses are facing a temporary stop change due to construction, and M9 and M50 buses are also detoured due to construction. M20 and M22 buses are detoured and facing stop changes due to the Chambers Street Reconstruction Project.
B43 buses are detoured heading northbound due to a religious observance on Kingston Ave. between Empire Blvd. and Carroll St. Meanwhile, B11 buses are detoured due to a street event on 50th St. between 9th and 10th Ave. and will take 52nd St. instead until 8 p.m.
Bx18 buses are detoured due to paving on Macombs Rd. between Inwood Ave. and W. Mount Eden Ave. Bx12SBS, Bx29 and Bx38 buses are detoured due to construction.
Q58 buses are detoured due to street paving on Madison Ave. between Fairview Ave. and Cypress Ave., and and Q113 buses are facing a route adjustment.
S59 and S78 buses are detoured due to paving on Hylan Blvd. between Barclay Ave. and Poillon Ave.
Finally, all bridges and tunnels are running regularly throughout the city.
