Right-of-Way Improvements Continue This Spring/Summer
Our aggressive program of track improvements to ensure the safety and reliability of the railroad continues along our right-of-way. Here's a quick rundown of the "what we will be doing where" through the spring/summer.
On the Harlem Line: After the completion of major track work between Woodlawn and Melrose, we are beginning track and drainage improvements on all four tracks between Melrose in the Bronx and Harlem-125th Street Station. On weekends, we will be installing new switches in this area, so as not to impact your weekday commute.
On the Hudson Line: We will be making track and drainage improvements between Riverdale and Tarrytown. This work will require the use of bridgeplates at some stations. (Please use caution when boarding and exiting your train using bridgeplates. Never wait on the bridgeplate for your train: remain on the station platform. Wait until the train comes to a full stop and your fellow passengers get off the train before stepping onto the bridgeplate.)
On the New Haven Line: Track improvements will take place between Larchmont and Bridgeport and include cyclical tie replacement and resurfacing of the track bed. On weekends switch replacement will take place between Harrison and Bridgeport, so as not to impact your commute. On Walk and Saga Bridges, we will be installing new bridge timbers (ties).
Finally, we will also be replacing bridge timbers on the last of the four tracks on the Harlem River Lift Bridge, which is utilized by all lines.
