While construction is taking place on I-95 at Exit 9 east of Stamford this Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and 2, Metro-North will add cars to its service to accommodate additional riders. Customers should expect the possibility of crowded conditions.

This announcement, incompetently buried (for how long?) on Metro-North’s website, was dug up Friday morning. After this article appeared, it was posted on the Metro-North home page.

For customers traveling to the Yankee games at Yankee Stadium on Saturday and Sunday, Metro-North will operate a second Yankee Clipper train from New Haven, as well as the regularly scheduled train from Stamford, with additional return service after the game:

Inbound to Yankee Stadium- E. 153rd St., one additional train will be added departing New Haven at 3:12 PM and stopping at West Haven, Milford, Stratford, Bridgeport, Fairfield Metro, Fairfield, Southport, Green’s Farms, Westport, East Norwalk, South Norwalk, Rowayton, Darien, Noroton Heights and Stamford before arriving at the stadium station at 5:09 pm.

Outbound from Yankee Stadium-E. 153rd St., one additional train will be added post-game operating express to Stamford and then making all stops to New Haven, in addition to the regularly scheduled Yankee Clipper trains.
