Port Jervis Commuter Line to undergo comprehensive improvements

NEW YORK – Metro-North Railroad will substitute bus service for weekday, off-peak trains between Port Jervis and Harriman on the Port Jervis Line beginning September 11 and continuing for several weeks.

That will pave the way for the railroad to perform infrastructure improvements on that section of the line.

During that time period, Metro-North crews will perform structural repairs at the Moodna and Woodbury Viaducts, as well as remove the defunct overhead bridge at Day Road in Campbell Hall so the town can establish formal cul-de-sacs on either end.

Crews will also undertake a rock slope remediation project, inspecting and reinforcing the rock slopes adjacent to the tracks between Port Jervis and Harriman to ensure that they are free of any loose rocks and brush that could fall on the tracks and cause delays.

Elsewhere along the line, crews will install ties, weld tracks and paint stations.
