Metro North To Make Upper Harlem Line Improvements

The MTA Metro-North Railroad has announced it will be making improvements along the upper portion of the Harlem Line this weekend. Here is more via the official press release I received:

MTA Metro-North Railroad today announced that crews will perform critical work between Wassaic and Southeast this weekend, October 20-22. Metro-North crews are renewing the Cornwall Hill Road grade crossing in Patterson, replacing the crossing surface, rails and ties. Elsewhere along the tracks, crews will cut brush and weld rail joints.

To accommodate this track work, after 10 p.m. on Friday, October 20, buses will replace trains at all stations between Wassaic and Southeast. Normal train service will resume with the first scheduled train of Monday, October 23.

Service details are below:


Starting with the 11:28 p.m. departure from Wassaic on Friday, October 20, and for all departures on Saturday and Sunday, October 21-22, buses will substitute for trains from Wassaic to Southeast, making stops at the following stations: Tenmile River, Dover Plains, Harlem Valley-Wingdale, Pawling and Patterson. Bus service will operate 15-30 minutes earlier than normally scheduled train times.


Starting with the 8:52 p.m. departure from Grand Central on Friday, October 20, and for all departures on Saturday and Sunday, October 21-22, trains from Grand Central to Southeast will connect with bus service at Southeast. Buses will make each train’s stops at: Patterson, Pawling, Harlem Valley-Wingdale, Dover Plains, Tenmile River and Wassaic. Customers should allow for later arrival times.
