(CBS Connecticut) — As workers continue to clear the railroad tracks in Manhattan after a building explosion this morning, Metro-North has announced service changes for riders. All service was suspended immediately after the blast. Now, riders heading into New York from Connecticut are being taken as far as 233rd Street in the Bronx and asked to walk to the Number 2 subway line. For East Side destinations, they can transfer to the Number 5 subway at East 180th Street.
Travelers leaving New York for Connecticut are advised to take the Number 5 subway to East 180th Street, transfer to the Number 2 subway to 233rd Street, where they can walk to the Woodlawn Station for Metro North service.
The railroad says no riders are currently stranded.
