Metro-North commuters face more delays on New Haven Line

Officials suggested commuters carpool, work from home if possible or give themselves plenty of extra time to account for delays.

MOUNT VERNON - Metro-North officials have advised commuters on the New Haven Line that a power issue will result in prolonged delays that may last up to three weeks.

The announcement was made Wednesday after work on the Mount Vernon substation caused a feeder cable to fail. Con Edison is working in conjunction with Metro-North, but insists that similar outages are not typically short-lived.

Metro-North provided buses and diesel trains at about one-third their normal capacity, making for some very crowded trains and long commutes.
