Stepping up pressure on Metro-North, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal has requested that the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) provide its inspection reports, safety evaluations, and enforcement actions of the railroad for the past decade.
Blumenthal requested the information Wednesday in a letter to Joseph C. Szabo, administrator of the FRA, Blumenthal’s office said today.
He said the information would provide “historical context” to the public about the FRA’s ongoing probe of Metro-North’s safety procedures and protocols, Operation Deep Dive.
“Recent incidents involving Metro-North clearly show the need for a renewed focus on railroad safety and reliability,” Blumenthal’s letter said.
