Tie Replacement to Disrupt Northeast Corridor in Connecticut

A project to replace 74,000 defective concrete ties along the Northeast Corridor in Connecticut later this year is likely to play havoc with Amtrak's on-time performance on the route. The Day, a New London newspaper, reports than one of the two tracks on the line, which hugs Long Island Sound in some locations, will be out of service between July and November. Peter Richter, the Director of Shore Line East, said the tie replacement was one of the reasons his agency has delayed a planned extension of regional rail service from Old Saybrook to New London until 2010.
