Metro-North Anticipates Delays This Morning Due To Power Problems

<p>Metro-North anticipates delays during this morning's rush due to power problems. Weekend maintenance work in the Park Avenue Tunnel is taking longer than expected to restore full electric power to all four tracks. This will reduce capacity in the tunnel during the morning rush hour. Metro-North must reduce the number of trains that can occupy the tracks at the same time.</p>
<p>The railroad advises customers to expect delays of 5 to 10 minutes between 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.</p>
<p>Anticipated delays will worsen to about 10-to-20 minutes during the height of the rush hour between 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.</p>
<p>This will affect both northbound and southbound trains.</p>
<p>Additional information will be forthcoming as it is available.</p>
