NEW YORK (CBS 2 / WCBS 880) – The waiting was over Monday for Long Island Railroad customers. Schedules were back to normal after a weekend of extensive construction-related delays.
Over the weekend, the railroad’s $56 million upgrade project left a long trail of frustration. “We had to take two trains, a train to another train to another train to get here to wait to get on another train,” said Medina Thorne of Wyandanch.
“Bad is not the world. It’s horrible,” exclaimed Tiyanah Rivera of Wyandanch.
The upgrade project was set to be completed the weekend of November 6, which means two more days of heavy delays and limited service.
That’s also the weekend of the New York City Marathon.
