Buses will be back on Metro North's Danbury branch line again this weekend. The state Department of Transportation and its contractors are running tests at five intersections to figure out what's causing crossing gates to activate at the wrong times. The intersections are all in Danbury. They are Great Pasture Road, Shelter Rock Road, Triangle Street, Taylor Street and East Liberty Street.
Three in Bethel – Greenwood Avenue, South Street and Taylor Road – have been fixed and the “stop and warn” requirements at those crossings were lifted yesterday.
Brookfield Representative David Scribner says there is still plenty of work to be done though in rebuilding confidence in the railroad.
