Metro Rail Repair Project

Single Tracking


November-December 2022

What you need to know:

Metro Rail will be singletracking between Fountain Plaza and Seneca Station the following dates. Erie Canal Harbor station will not be served.

    • Monday, December 5, 7 pm – end of service
    • Tuesday, December 6, 7 pm – end of service
    • Wednesday, December 7, 7 pm – end of service
    • Thursday, December 8, 7 pm – end of service

  • The Metro Rail schedule will change. We will follow the singletracking schedule.
  • At underground stations, wait at your regular platform.
  • At Fountain Plaza station, riders must transfer to/from a shuttle train that serves all above ground stations.
  • At Lafayette/Evans Bank Station, Church Station, Seneca/Merchants Insurance Station, and Erie Canal Harbor Station, wait on the outbound side (to University) for trains in both directions.

The big picture:

Single Tracking is necessary as NFTA works to update and improve Metro Rail. In 2022, and early 2023, you may experience single tracking related to the following projects:

  • Erie Canal Harbor Rehabilitation – at Erie Canal Harbor Station. This project involves significant changes and improvements to Erie Canal Harbor station. It is scheduled to be completed in spring 2023.
  • DL&W Station Construction – in the area of DL&W Terminal. This project involves a major redesign of rail infrastructure in the vicinity of DL&W Terminal, followed by the construction of a new Metro Rail station at DL&W. It will continue through at least 2024.

Thank you for your patience. We apologize for any inconvenience this construction may cause to riders.
