Tuesday 12:12 a.m. update: The Long Island Rail Road states that service between Speonk and Montauk is anticipated to resume in time for the morning commute Tuesday.
"The LIRR is currently running final test trains to Montauk and fully expects to provide normal AM Rush service," the MTA website states.
Train service east of Speonk on the Montauk Branch of the Long Island Rail Road is still suspended in both directions due to the blizzard that blanketed the East End with snow Friday and Saturday.
There is no bus service being provided between Speonk and Montauk in lieu of trains. Station waiting rooms are still open.
Service was suspended Friday night at 8:30, with the MTA citing safety issues of snow accumulation and poor visibility due to the snowstorm. It has remained suspended since.
The LIRR does not have an estimate of when service will be restored.
“Until service is fully restored, our crews will continue working around the clock clearing snow and ice from the tracks, clearing yards, inspecting signals, train equipment, switches and grade crossings,” said LIRR President Helena Williams. “The biggest tasks right now are removing snow and clearing ice from the third rail.”
