Power Problems Delay Metro North Into New York

NEW YORK (AP) _ Connecticut commuters headed into New York City can expect significant rail and highway delays.

Metro-North Railroad said that service is extremely limited on the New Haven line between Stamford and Grand Central Terminal due to a Con Edison cable feeder failure.

Con Edison says the railroad was doing work on the Mount Vernon substation when a feeder cable failed. The utility’s crews are on the scene.

The railroad says trains will be very crowded and advises passengers to seek alternate transportation.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation reported that southbound Interstate 95 is congested on a 21-mile stretch near Norwalk, between exits 11 and 31.

Further south, two separate car accidents have shut lanes on I-95, causing more delays.
