Metro-North Railroad suspends service north of Southeast


Heavy rain and flash flooding which fell across the Lower Hudson Valley led to obstruction along Metro-North Railroad’s Hudson Line north of Croton Harmon Station. Sunday, July 9, 2023. Credit: MTA Metro-North Railroad

Metro-North Railroad announced Monday that it has suspended service on the Harlem line between Southeast and Wassaic. Stations north of Southeast have no service at least through the morning hours due to high water above running rail in sections of track and a washout on the right of way south of Dover in Dutchess County.

The suspensions on the Harlem line are in addition to suspensions that went into effect yesterday on the Hudson line. Sections of tracks north of Croton-Harmon had become impassable due to high water, trees, boulders and other debris,. Metro-North Railroad service between Croton-Harmon and Poughkeepsie is suspended and is expected to remain unavailable at least through the day Monday.

Harlem line customers normally riding to or from the affected stations are encouraged to work from home Monday where that is an option or take Harlem line service at Southeast, Croton Falls and other stations along that line.
