Fatality on railroad tracks impacts morning commute

UPDATED MONDAY 8:15 A.M. — As police investigate a train track fatality in Nororton Heights, the Monday morning commute has become a nightmare for Metro North users.

According to reports, an unidentified person was struck and killed on the train tracks in Noroton Heights a little after 6:30 a.m. on Monday morning. A MTA investigation is ongoing and because of that there severely impacted Metro North service to or from Darien at this time.

Metro North released a statement on Monday morning informing commuters that eastbound trains will not be stopping at Noroton Heights, Darien and Rowayton.  They say that all eastbound trains will carry customers to South Norwalk where they will need to transfer to a westbound train back to local stations. Customers at Noroton Heights, Darien and Rowayton must board a Westbound train to Stamford and transfer to an eastbound train for service east. Commuters are also urged to listen for announcements at their stations for any further updates.

This is also creating a westbound delay of up to 15 minutes.

Metro North says that it will offer buses in lieu of eastbound train service for Noroton Heights, Darien and Rowayton.
