THE BRONX - Metro-North Railroad riders are in for some commuting changes for the rest of the summer.

Crews have kicked off the Right-of-Way Improvement Program on the Harlem and New Haven lines, between the Melrose and Woodlawn stations in the Bronx. The nine-week project facilitates necessary maintenance and cleanup along the tracks.

Transportation officials say many inbound New York City trains will arrive on the outbound platform, and track closures will cause scattered five or 10 minute delays. Temporary platforms called bridge plates are also being used throughout the construction period.

The work is scheduled to be completed by Sept. 2. Riders are reminded to listen to announcements at each station for boarding instructions.
