Smoke condition at Atlantic Avenue subway station

There's a smoke condition at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center subway station that is affecting 2-3-4 and 5 trains. Southbound trains are stopping in Lower Manhattan and not going to Brooklyn.

Southbound 2 and 3 trains are turning around at Chambers Street. Southbound 4 and 5 trains are turning around at Bowling Green.

Northbound 2-3-4 and 5 trains are stopping and turning around at the Eastern Pkwy-Brooklyn Museum Station so there is no service between Lower Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn on those four lines, in both directions.

The smoke condition started at around 6pm when a southbound 2 train was stopped at the station because of a sick passenger. Smoke started coming from the train or the tracks, and the station was evacuated as a result.

The cause of the smoke condition is under investigation.

The smoke is not affecting N-Q-R-B and D trains.
