Saugatuck RR Bridge Problem Delays Trains

WestportNow.com Image
UPDATE Problems closing the Saugatuck Railroad Bridge today delayed New Haven Line service for four hours, according to Metro-North. “The bridge had failed to fully close after an scheduled opening for marine traffic that took place a few minutes before 11 a.m.,” said spokesman Aaron Donovan. “It rectified at 11:26 a.m. when we closed and locked the bridge (making it available for train use), but as a result, three Metro-North trains and one Amtrak train were delayed by up to 25 minutes.” Metro-North later said delays continued until about 4 p.m. when it said trains were on or close to schedule.. Pictured is the scheduled 11:08 a.m. train to Grand Central halted on the bridge. The bridge— built in 1905 and actually not one, but two parallel bridges, each carrying two tracks—was also hit by a closing problem in September and July. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) WestportNow.com photo

That’s what happens to 100+year old bridges.  Maybe we get a new one before it hits 125 years old.
