Hunts Point Subway Station Shutdown Due To Fuel Leak
Gasoline leaked into the Hunts Point Avenue station on the No. 6 line.
The source was a storage tank from the BP gas station above the Bronx subway stop.
The station was evacuated and power was shut off.
Trains in both directions bypassed the Hunts Points station.
Brooklyn Bridge-bound trains were running express from the Parkchester Station to the Third Avenue-138th Street station. Trains skipped the following stations: St. Lawrence Avenue, Morrison-Soundview Avenues, Elder Avenue, Whitlock Avenue, Longwood Avenue, E 149th Street, E 143rd Street-St.Marys’s Street, Cypress Avenue and Brook Avenue.
The MTA advised passengers to take the Pelham Bay Park-bound trains to the Parkchester Station and then take a Brooklyn Bridge-bound train.
Hazmat workers were cleaning up the gasoline.
