MTA Metro-North Railroad today announced that crews will perform New Haven Line track work between Larchmont and Harrison starting May 17 to ensure the continuing safety and reliability of the line. As a result, the railroad is making minor schedule adjustments to mid-day and evening trains. Among the track work tasks, crews will re-level the tracks to ensure proper height in relation to the overhead wires that power the trains using a routine, periodic process known as “undercutting” because it adjusts the level of the ballast, or stabilizing stones, under the tracks.
To accommodate the work, three mid-day Grand Central-bound local trains from Stamford will operate between five to eight minutes later, and four Stamford-bound local trains evening trains will operate between two and 10 minutes later.
All adjusted departure times will be shown in the Metro-North Train Time and MYmta apps and downloadable PDF timetables showing the changes will be available at http://web.mta.info/mnr/html/planning/schedules/schedules.htm.
