Park Avenue Tunnel Upgrades Run Late For Metro-North

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - Metro-North says the morning went pretty well.

The commuter railroad had advised riders earlier Monday to anticipate delays because weekend Con Edison power upgrades in the Park Avenue tunnel ran late.

So, not all of the tracks into and out of Grand Central Terminal were in service.

"We do have good news from Con Ed that the power should be restored well before the P.M. rush. So, if you want to get in, we'll get you home," Metro-North spokesperson Marjorie Anders told WCBS 880 reporter Sean Adams.

Metro-North says it combined six trains to avoid congestion. That means riders will get on a train within a few minutes of their normal times. But it says the train will make slightly more stops than usual.

The railroad said trains also may be more crowded than usual, but of course, today is Columbus Day, when many people are off from work.
