State officials said that the December problems were not a direct result of the ramp closure but of regional situations like a snow storm and diverted traffic due to problems at the George Washington Bridge.
The new lighting plan will more clearly distinguish the channel from the bridge and make it easier for vessels to pass through the construction zone, the Coast Guard said.
Authorities said the toxicology report, which hasn’t been made public, supports their investigation and should lead to an indictment in the summer’s fatal Hudson River barge collision.
The deadly collision left groom-to-be Brian Bond grieving for his intended, Lindsey Stewart, and his best friend while facing surgery for his own injuries two weeks before the wedding day.
The Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven Lines will operate with regularly scheduled service on Monday, including the Wassaic Branch on the Harlem Line and the Waterbury and Danbury Branches on the New Haven Line.
When it comes to funding construction for a new Tappan Zee Bridge, officials say people are speaking with their wallets.
