Work being done at a Metro North crossing in Danbury this coming weekend is not related to ongoing signal system issues.
Metro-North has been providing off-peak and weekend busing for Danbury Branch customers since March 1st, when a temporary scheduled was put in place to figure out what is causing false activations of crossing gates on the Danbury branch.
Separately, this coming weekend Metro-North track workers will be upgrading the grade crossing at East Liberty Street in Danbury. They will be replacing wooden ties, running rail and the rubber crossing pads on the roadway to make it a smoother crossing. The work also involves replacing the ballast--the loose rock between the ties that stabilize the whole track structure.
A detour will be put in place during that work.
