Full Schedules on Hudson Line, Harlem and New Haven Lines; Some Delays and Crowding Possible. MTA Metro-North Railroad has restored all service to and from Grand Central Terminal after an explosion and building collapse next to Metro-North’s tracks running above Park Avenue. New Haven and Harlem line service was restored earlier in the afternoon, and Hudson Line service was restored as additional tracks reopened.
Metro-North structural engineers have verified the integrity of the Park Avenue elevated structure. And all four tracks have been restored to service after being cleared of debris, inspected for track and third rail integrity and approved for operations by Metro-North and the New York City Fire Department.
Trains will run at reduced speeds through the collapse zone to protect nearby employees and reduce vibrations as rescue and recovery work continues. This will result in some delays and crowding through the rush hour.
