LIRR Service Disruption Could Go on for Days

If you take the Long Island Rail Road, consider leaving work early.

The disruption of service "could last for days," according to the LIRR, following Monday mornings NJ Transit train derailment at Penn Station.

Customers are advised to "allow extra travel time" between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. through the end of the week as crews work to repair tracks damaged in Monday's incident, according to a Newsday report.

The railroad is preparing for its third day in a row of heavy rush hour delays.

Twenty-six evening rush hour trains are either canceled or will be diverted, as Amtrak works on the tracks.

"We have offered support and any assistance they need to help speed these repairs," said LIRR president Patrick Nowakowski.
