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.
