NEW YORK – Metro-North crews will be making improvements to the Port Jervis Line this coming weekend. The upgrades include installing a new cab signal system, welding and surfacing track, drainage work and laying additional ballast.
To accommodate work that helps ensure the ongoing reliability and safety of the line, buses will substitute for trains between Port Jervis and Ramsey-Route 17 from Friday evening, March 9 through Sunday evening, March 11. Buses will depart at the same time as scheduled trains.
Normal train schedules apply this weekend between Suffern and Secaucus/Hoboken. Buses will serve all stations between Sloatsburg and Port Jervis.
Regular train service will resume on Monday, March 12 with the 3:50 a.m. train from Port Jervis to Hoboken.
