After Barge Collison Amtrak Restores Metro-North Service

Metro-North RailroadAmtrak has restored service on the Empire Line after a boat struck the Spuyten Duyvil Bridge (where the Hudson and Harlem Rivers meet). The boat struck the bridge around 4:20 p.m. Sunday, prompting a temporary suspension in both directions.

Around 8:30 p.m., a spokesperson for Amtrak said crews inspected the bridge and have reopened it.

Metro-North accommodated Amtrak customers waiting on Metro-North platforms at 125th Street and other platforms by transporting them to Grand Central Terminal. Metro-North service was not impacted.

There were no injuries reported.

Information about the boat is unclear at this time. The FDNY did not find a boat in the vicinity of the bridge.

Amtrak customers are encouraged to call 800-USA-RAIL to check on the status of their trains.

Customers should expect delays as service resumes and trains begin moving again.
