Get ready for a traffic mess in New Haven Monday, as Metro-North service will likely remain shut down due to Friday evening’s derailment and collision.
The number of people injured in the Friday evening crash on the New Haven line rose to at least 70 Saturday; one of the two trains in the collision was the 5:35 p.m. out of New Haven.
U.S. Sen. Dick Blumenthal said Saturday that “safety features” in the modernized Metro-North cars and improved standards “saved lives” in the crash.
He drew a lesson from that: “These and other investments in upgrading public services are consequential. Safe and reliable rail service is a key priority for our economy.”
Meanwhile, officials in New Haven updated preparations for what was already promising to be a traffic headache day, the annual Yale graduation. With Metro-North shut down, many visitors to the event will have to drive into New Haven rather than take the train. Plus, this year graduation falls on a work day (as opposed to Memorial Day), so normal business traffic will figure into the mix as well.
