Metro North New Haven Service Suspended

Note:  As of early afternoon,  the MTA website said limited service had been restored,  on an hourly basis,  with trains making all local stops.  For the latest,  visit their website, mta.info

People hoping to go to New York City, or those who use the New Haven line of Metro North to get to work, will have to sit tight as crews continue to scramble to clean up after the blizzard.

Workers are digging out switches and clearing platforms so service can resume.  Up to a foot or more of snow fell along the shoreline.

A Metro North spokeswoman says there isn’t much to do in New York anyway, as streets there are basically impassable.

The good news is that no trains and no customers are stranded.  Trains will run on a holiday schedule once service resumes.
