Editor’s Note: From a Metro North representative:
As part of Metro North’s ongoing restoration work related Hurricane Ida, we will be performing night work from Tuesday, Oct. 12, through Friday, Oct. 15, between approximately 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. north of Dobbs Ferry station at Wicker’s Creek. Our contractor will be installing an excavation support system consisting of piles and steel plates. This work is needed for the new culvert foundations carrying the four Hudson Line tracks above. As a result of the culvert washout during Hurricane Ida, two of the four tracks remain out of service at this location. The work will take place adjacent to one of the only two remaining operating tracks. Therefore, the work must be done at night so there is less impact on train service while we understand it will be a noisy operation temporarily. We will keep you informed of additional night work required to complete this restoration project and in the meantime we appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding while we perform this important work. Thank you.
