Con Edison says Metro-North fix may take three weeks
- Consolidated Edison (ED) says it will take two to three weeks to repair a failed power line that snarled a heavily traveled Metro-North train between New York and Connecticut and forced Amtrak to halt some Acela Express service.
- Connecticut's governor urges commuters to find alternative means of travel because the small number of trains that are expected to run won’t accommodate residents who regularly travel to NYC.
- ED says a 138K-volt cable serving Metro-North equipment failed early this morning, and another feeder that normally serves the line was unavailable because of scheduled repairs.
