Metro-North stabilizes track near Hudson River

Metro-North hired contractor Kiewit Infrastructure Co. to work on stabilizing an embankment along the Hudson Highlands north of Peekskill, which is an area of track vulnerable to rock slides and washouts. "This is Metro-North's first major bank stabilization project along the Hudson River, and has been in the planning stages for several years," said Metro-North President Howard Permut.
