A series of emergency repairs at New York’s Pennsylvania Station begin July 10, impacting Amtrak, Long Island Railroad, and New Jersey Transit commuters for the coming months. Theatregoers using these routes should plan accordingly to ensure they make it to their shows on time.

The repair plan follows three train derailments that occurred at the midtown hub this year: March 24, April 3, and most recently, July 6. According to the New York Times, the majority of work will be done on the station’s “A Interlocking,” a converging of 21 tracks west of the passenger platforms.

Station work is expected to cause delays, track closures, and rerouting through the end of August.
