    BART was experiencing a major delay at its South Hayward station Monday evening due to a compromised power line, the agency said.

    The Hayward Fire Department requested power off on both tracks near South Hayward because of needed repairs on a compromised line at an area near the station, BART said.

    BART was turning trains back at Hayward.

    PG&E secured the compromised line at about 6:15 p.m., and power was subsequently restored to the South Hayward station, BART said.

    Residual delays were expected throughout the evening commute, BART said.
