Metro-North New Haven line service resumes

STAMFORD - Some Metro-North commuters say they are fed up after service was suspended because of wires on the tracks in Cos Cob this morning.

No trains were able to travel between Stamford and Harrison, New York for two hours. Officials say that they had no choice but to shut down four tracks when a worker accidentally damaged some overhead wires.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal and other leaders addressed the issue at a news conference Friday morning, vowing to make things better for those who ride the rails.

Metro-North released a statement today apologizing for the interruption in service as well.

Commuters say that it's not enough, and that they want to see change.
