A loss of power at the newly built Second Avenue subway line is impacting service on multiple lines, according to the MTA.

The third rail at 72nd St. and 86th St. lost power twice - first at 10:30 a.m., then again at 10:50 a.m. While it was restored shortly after, it went back out at about 11 a.m. Customers are advised to allow additional travel time. The cause of the power outage was under investigation, the agency said. No Q trains are running in either direction between 57th and 96th streets on the Second Avenue line. Con Edison said this is not a problem with its equipment and has to do with MTA equipment. He told News 4 over Twitter it took workers 15 minutes to manually open the train doors.
