Metro-North commuters should brace for some major travel delays as service to & from Grand Central has been suspended due to a fire on the Harlem River Bridge. Here is a brief report from Pete Donohue of the New York Daily News:
A blaze on a bridge over the Harlem River halted all Metro-North rail traffic to and from the city Monday afternoon, officials said.
“At this point, there is no service into or out of Grand Central,” said MTA spokesman Sam Zambuto. “We don’t have a cause of the fire at this point.”
The fire appeared to have broken out in wooden pilings underneath the rail bridge, which connects the Bronx with Manhattan at 138th St.
No injuries have been reported.
I will update this as the story progresses.
