Infrastructure work on the New Haven Line will mean longer trips for commuters and others — 1 to 6 minutes for peak hours and 1 to 11 minutes for off-peak trips and on weekends, according to Metro-North. For the New Canaan Branch, trips will be lengthened anywhere from 1 to 16 minutes, Metro-North says. New train schedules coming out on April 14 will reflect the longer trip times. Here’s Metro-North’s announcement, from its March Mileposts newsletter:
Our new timetables effective April 14 on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven lines are designed to reflect more accurately how the railroad’s progressive infrastructure improvement plan affects train running times, resulting in more reliable, dependable and safe service for our customers. Most of our trains will have an adjusted schedule, anywhere from one minute to, in some cases, 16 minutes on the Connecticut branch lines.

A fire that knocked out some electrical equipment in Milford just after midnight on Tuesday is resulting in train delays of 10 to 15 minutes between Stamford and New Haven until the equipment is replaced, Metro-North says. In an announcement on Tuesday, Metro-North didn’t say how long it will take until the problem is fixed. The “power substation” damaged in the fire is in Milford, just east of the Devon Moveable Bridge, a railroad bridge spanning the Housatonic River close to the Interstate 95 bridge between Stratford and Milford.
