Schedule Changes Effective July 1 through September 2 to Accommodate Bronx Right-of Way Improvements

Metro-North will conduct a comprehensive right-of-way improvement program in the Bronx between Melrose and Woodlawn for nine weeks from July 1 through Labor Day, September 2.

Work taking place as part of this program will include track and drainage improvements, tie replacement, fencing repairs and general cleanup of the area along our tracks.

To accommodate this project, one of the four tracks in this area will be out of service at all times, requiring some minor train schedule changes.

The schedules of a small number of AM peak, PM peak, and off-peak trains will be adjusted, mostly between one and three minutes.

In addition, three AM Peak trains – one on the Harlem Line and two on the New
Haven Line – will not operate.

Details of the changes by line are as follows:

On the Harlem Line

accommodate riders of this train, up to 15 minutes earlier than the train not operating.

On the New Haven Line

Rochelle, or the 8:08 AM train from Stamford, instead.

Also look for these New Haven Line adjustments associated with our ongoing Stations Rehabilitation project:

On the Hudson Line

To accommodate adjusted Harlem and New Haven Line trains on the shared approach to Grand Central Terminal:

At the conclusion of the Bronx project, service will revert to the timetable currently in effect.

New July 1 schedule information is available on our schedules page and timetables will be available later this week in Grand Central Terminal and at outlying stations.

Customers between Melrose and Woodlawn stations please note:

Metro-North will be monitoring train operations during this project and will make additional changes if necessary.

We appreciate your patience as we conduct these improvements to our right-of-way in the Bronx.
