More LIRR issues Tuesday


LIRR riders on the Ronkonkoma, Port Jefferson and Huntington branches got stuck in some big delays during Tuesday night’s rush hour.

A fire on a utility pole near the LIRR tracks in Westbury suspended service for a while thousands were trying to get home from work and to the second Passover seder.  Fire officials say that electrical wires ignited the pole, which was most likely the result of high winds.

The LIRR expects to have a normal Wednesday morning rush hour.
