Thames River Bridge Rail Service Set for June 24

During that four-day period, regularly scheduled Amtrak service between New York and Boston will be suspended and limited alternate train and bus service will be provided in the New York-Boston region.

Because of the bridge outage, Amtrak has scheduled three Boston-New Haven-New York Inland Route trains (via Hartford and Springfield) and limited connecting bus service to bypass the bridge outage during the four-day period from June 24 through June 27.

Work on the 90-year-old drawbridge, which connects Groton and New London, Conn., was postponed due to unexpected complications encountered by Amtrak's contractors in dismantling the old draw span's massive concrete counterweight.

After more than two years of preparation and construction, Amtrak will install a new vertical lift span to replace the movable bascule portion of the bridge, marking the final stage of a multi-year, $83 million project designed to improve the reliability of the bridge, reduce the chance of operational failures, and minimize train delays. Amtrak apologizes for any additional inconvenience resulting from the shift in plans.
