STRATFORD -

Metro-North's New Haven Line is delayed 45 to 50 minutes due to single-tracking as a result of wire damage, between Bridgeport and Stratford, officials say.

The 5:35 a.m. train from Stamford to Grand Central Terminal and the 5:22 a.m. train from New Haven were first delayed at Bridgeport due to mechanical issues near the Stratford station, MTA officials say.

 

Officials say the New Haven line eastbound service is operating from Grand Central Terminal to Bridgeport and substitute bus service will be provided from Bridgeport to New Haven, due to the wire damage between Bridgeport and Stratford.
