updated: FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — Trains on the New Haven Line were continuing to see delays Tuesday morning of up to 15 to 20 minutes between Greenwich and Stamford due to a drawbridge failure, Metro-North said via Twitter and on its website.

The drawbridge failure was in the vicinity of Cos Cob. Delays have been reported throughout the morning commute.  

Another opening of the Cos Cob bridge was also scheduled for 11 a.m. to noon Thursday, Metro-North said. This opening could cause more delays, the railroad said.

Metro-North spokesperson Nancy Gamerman said delays of 10 to 15 minutes are continuing but should return to normal during the day.

"As the morning progresses the delays will dissipate," she said.

The maximum delay is 14 minutes on one train as of 10 a.m., she said. 

Also, delays on the the Danbury branch due to the bridge issues had ended by late morning. But on the Waterbury Branch, delays were reported of 20 to 25 minutes due to a late connection. That was caused by mainline congestion from issues involving the bridge in Cos Cob.
