Greenwich ‘bridge issues’ delay Metro-North trains

April 2, 2019

Metro-North is reporting up to 20-minute delays on the New Haven Line Tuesday morning.

In a 10:52 a.m. advisory, it said the delays are “a result of issues closing the bridge after an opening in the vicinity of Cos Cob.”

The Cos Cob Bridge over the Mianus River was completed in 1904, and is the busiest moveable bridge on the New Haven Line, which last year carried nearly 40 million passengers.

The four largest rail bridges in Fairfield County -- the Cos Cob Bridge in Greenwich, the Saugatuck River Bridge in Westport, the Norwalk Walk Bridge and the Devon Bridge over the Housatonic River -- are remnants of another time.

Only the Walk Bridge, built in 1896, is being replaced.
