Metro Rail Repair Project

Single Tracking


Metro Rail is singletracking. Trains arrive at stations approximately every twenty minutes, and are running only on the outbound track between Allen Station and Humboldt Hospital Station.

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.
