Single tracking required:
Beginning Monday, April 12, Metro-North will begin replacing the track switches north of Hartsdale station. These track switches allow trains to be switched between the two main tracks on the line. The track switches are near the end of their expected service life and need replacement. Once completed, the project will increase train service reliability.

In order to get this work done, it will require trains to single-track between Scarsdale and North White Plains station. Metro-North accomplished similar trackwork last year near the Scarsdale station last year, advancing switch replacements while ridership was low due to the COVID-19 pandemic and completed the project in less time.
