There are four tracks in this segment of the New Haven Line, but two of those tracks are out of service for a long-term project to replace overhead wires.  On the remaining two tracks, there was extensive infrastructure damage as a result of a Friday evening train collision.  Both the track and the overhead wire have been damaged.  The train cars cannot be removed until the on-scene investigation is complete, and they will need to be removed by crane.
 
Normal service through this area is not expected to resume until a full investigation is complete, the infrastructure is fully assessed, and repairs are made.
 
As more information becomes available we will notify you as soon as possible.  Please visit mta.info for updates and listen for announcements at your station.
