As part of a collaboration with the New York State Department of Transportation and the Town of New Castle, Metro-North Railroad will be making improvements at Roaring Brook Road in Chappaqua where it crosses the Harlem Line tracks this weekend. The road will be closed from 7:30 p.m. Friday until 8 p.m. Sunday while weekend train service will not be affected.
The railroad will take the easternmost track out of service to replace the ties, running rails and rubber crossing mats while operating all trains on the single track that remains in service, which was refurbished during a similar closing last month.
During this work, the NYS DOT will close the entrance and exit ramps from the Saw Mill River Parkway and Roaring Brook Road between the Parkway and Southview Road will be closed to traffic at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Friday, June 26.
Motorists are advised to follow the posted detour and expect delays. Drivers are asked to use caution when traveling through the work area and pay particular attention to all traffic control devices, including work zone signs and flaggers.
The area is prone to flooding as it is where Roaring Brook flows into Chappaqua Brook, which runs alongside the tracks. To improve drainage, railroad forces will again need to close the road one weekend in July, tentatively set for July 10 -12.
Maintenance of Way crews will clear numerous culverts and deepen ditches on either side of the tracks.
Work is weather permitting.
