Metro-North New Haven Line Will Be Disrupted for PM Rush Hour

Metro-North Railroad is advising New Haven Line customers that train service through Norwalk, Connecticut, is likely to be suspended during the rush hour this afternoon and evening. Teams of technicians from Metro-North have been unable to fully close the Walk Bridge, which was built in 1896 and swings open to allow marine traffic to pass.

The MTA Bus Company will provide 24 buses from the Bronx to shuttle Metro-North customers between South Norwalk and East Norwalk via bus. Trains will run in two sections: Between Grand Central Terminal and South Norwalk, and between East Norwalk and New Haven.

Train service between Stamford and Grand Central is not impacted. Trains in this segment of the New Haven Line will operate on normal schedules.

Metro-North apologizes for the inconvenience and is working to restore full train service as quickly as possible. Mechanics from Metro-North’s signals, track, structures, and overhead wire units are on scene to identify and fix the problem as quickly and safely as possible.
