Port Jervis Line Work This Weekend

Earlier today, the MTA Metro-North asked me to share information about the infrastructure work planned on the Port Jervis line this weekend:

MTA Metro-North Railroad today announced that Metro-North crews will make infrastructure improvements to the Port Jervis Line this weekend.

As part of the complete upgrade of the Port Jervis Line signal system, crews will continue installation work on the section of track between Harriman and Campbell Hall.  This new cab signal system needs to be in place to support Positive Train Control operations on the Port Jervis Line. Positive Train Control is a technology designed to reduce the potential for human error that can lead to train-involved accidents.

To accommodate the work, buses will substitute for trains between Port Jervis and Harriman from 11:30 p.m. on Friday, January 11, and continuing until 7 p.m. on Sunday, January 13. Trains will operate on normal schedules between Harriman and Hoboken.
