Limited New Haven Line Metro-North service restored; delays linger
NEW YORK (PIX11) — After a stuck bridge delayed the Friday commute for Metro-North commuters trying to get home on the New Haven Line, the MTA announced that limited service has been restored.
The first train moved eastbound at 6:20 p.m., at about 15 mile per hour, according to the MTA.
MTA advised that “substantial” residual delays should be expected.
Trains crossing the bridge, which is 118 years old, are traveling at restricted speeds on two of the four tracks.
The Walk Bridge became stuck for the second time in two weeks, preventing trains from crossing between South Norwalk and East Norwalk.
Governor Dannel P. Malloy wants to discuss the recent delays and failures plaguing Metro-North and the MTA, and is calling for a “crisis summit.”
