Metro-North is suggesting commuters work from home, as Hudson Valley riders are expected to find crowded trains, delays and headaches on Wednesday morning.

In a press release, Metro North is encouraging commuters to work from home or find alternate travel plans on Wednesday morning. A four alarm fire ripped through a local business in Harlem right under the Metro-North tracks at 118th Street on Tuesday. As a result there was limited train service in and out of Grand Central Terminal. Customers were dropped off in the Bronx and instructed to take the subway into Manhattan.

Metro-North personnel worked through the night to make repairs to the section of the elevated tracks, but two inside tracks remain out of service.  Trains will be able to safely operate on the two outside tracks at reduced speeds of 30 mph from the usual 60 mph.

A Saturday schedule will remain in effect for Wednesday on all three lines and customers should refer to the revised online schedule for more information.
