Commuters will need to prepared for delayed or canceled trains as the schedule for Metro-North’s Hudson line is changed on both Friday night and Saturday morning due to construction on the Tappan Zee Bridge, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.
The closure will enable the contractor to install another 700-ton girder over Metro-North’s tracks on Friday night, marking the end of Tappan Zee Constructors’ work near the Westchester landing, said the newspaper.
Fewer trains than normal will run during the night of construction, which will be completed early Saturday morning, the paper said.
The MTA offers the following schedule:
Hudson Line trains making stops to Croton-Harmon will depart Grand Central Terminal at the regular times of 10:20 and 11:20 p.m., 12:20 a.m., 1 a.m. and 1:50 a.m. The Croton-Harmon trains, except the 1 a.m. departure, will meet connecting trains making all local stops to Poughkeepsie. The semi-express to Croton-Harmon that normally departs Grand Central Terminal at 10:54 p.m. will not run; instead, take the 11:20 p.m. local.
Two Poughkeepsie-bound diesel trains that depart Grand Central Terminal at 11:47 p.m. and 12:43 a.m. will instead leave from Croton-Harmon after picking up passengers from local trains that begin at Grand Central at 11:20 a.m. and 12:20 a.m.
Trains will operate hourly, stopping at regularly scheduled times at all stations from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Terminal. Customers between Poughkeepsie and Croton-Harmon who normally ride express to Grand Central Terminal will instead change trains at Croton-Harmon. The 8:54 p.m. departure from Poughkeepsie, which normally runs local to Croton-Harmon, then express to Grand Central Terminal, will instead end at Croton-Harmon, where it will connect with the 10 p.m. local train to Grand Central Terminal.Click here to read the entire Poughkeepsie Journal story.
