The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says it's working to restore normal service on the L train in Brooklyn after a broken fiber cable caused signal problems Friday that led to service disruptions on the line.

For now, there are no L trains between Broadway Junction and Myrtle Avenue-Wyckoff Avenue in both directions.

Shuttle buses are making corresponding stops between the two stations.

There is limited L train service running between Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway and Broadway Junction.

At Broadway Junction, customers can transfer to the A, C, J, or Z trains for further service into Brooklyn and Manhattan.

There is also reduced service between Myrtle-Wyckoff and 8th Avenue in Manhattan.
