Metro-North Crews Battle Hudson Line Mudslide
Due to the collapse of a retaining wall at an apartment building above Metro-North tracks, a serious mudslide occurred last night just south of the Glenwood Station on the Hudson Line. Mud, soil and bricks buried the northbound local track.
Because of the steepness of the slope of the hill next to the tracks, and because the ongoing rain that may have further destabilized the remaining soil and a parking lot at the top of the hill, and as a safety precaution, Metro-North will operate at slow speeds in the area of the landslide to minimize vibrations caused by passing trains.
Two tracks are out of service and a third has a 30 mile per hour speed restriction going past the landslide.
Hudson Line customers should expect up to 30 minute delays in both directions during this morning's AM commute.
MTA Bus has sent buses to the four stations most impacted by the landslide - Riverdale, Ludlow, Glenwood and Greystone - for customers going northbound from those stations.
In addition, here may be some cancellations of trains that originate at Greystone.
