Metro-North announces new schedules

(PIX11) — Metro-North commuters were told to brace for up to 90-minute delays during the Friday morning rush due to wire damage along the New Haven Line, the agency said.

Service was temporarily suspended between Stamford and Harrison in the vicinity of Cos Cob, Metro-North said on its website.

Crews had power restored by 8 a.m. and shortly before 10 a.m., the agency tweeted that all trains were running on or close to schedule.

Power crews had been on scene to fix the catenary wire knocked down about 6 a.m. by a contractor at Cos Cob who was loading railroad ties, an MTA spokeswoman said.

Train service between New Haven and Stamford was not effected, the spokeswoman said. Shuttles were operating between Grand Central and Garrison.

Riders should listen for station announcements and monitor Metro-North’s website for updates.
