UPDATE: Apparently not. According to our original source on this, Flegenheimer, there were unexpected problems that caused the restoration to be delayed.
Finally, some good news. Subway service on the Q line is expected to be restored by this afternoon.
That comes by way of New York Times’ transit reporter Matt Flegenheimer, who tweeted during MTA Chairman Joe Lhota’s statements earlier today:
Lhota: Q expected back this afternoon. 2 and 3 by tomorrow

That, of course, is welcome news to the hundreds of thousands of residents who rely on the line in Brooklyn.
Q!! Q!!MT @mattfleg: According to unscientific survey of Twitter reax, people are really excited about the Q train.
