NORWALK, Conn. (WTNH) — Metro-North’s New Haven line is experiencing delays due to draw bridge failure in South Norwalk.

Metro-North says that customers should expect “significant delays” due to draw bridge failure in South Norwalk. Currently, there is only one track available for service over the draw bridge. The delays temporarily stranded some train travelers at Union Station in New Haven.

“There’s not much you really can do,” said delayed traveler, Val Sheehan.


To make matters worse, at Union Station the air conditioner was not running in the afternoon.

“The lack of air conditioning is terrible,” said delayed traveler, Carla Bellomarino.


MTA says that bus services is being arranged between East Norwalk and South Norwalk.

There will be no train service inbound to New York at the South Norwalk, Rowayton, Darien, and Noroton Heights stations. Customers wanting to get to Grand Central should go to the Stamford Station. Officials say there is also no Danbury service at this time due to overhead wire damage.

Customers are being urged to seek alternate routes. There is no word as to when service will be back to normal.
