Metro Rail Repair Project

Single Tracking


Single Tracking is necessary as NFTA works to update and improve Metro Rail. In 2022, you may experience single tracking related to the following projects:

  • City of Buffalo Lower Main Street Rehabilitation Project - on Main Street between Perry and Exchange. This project involves a complete redesign of the streetscape in this area, including sidewalk, track bed, rails, and more. It is scheduled to be completed in June 2022.
  • Erie Canal Harbor Rehabilitation – at Erie Canal Harbor Station. This project involves significant changes and improvements to Erie Canal Harbor station. It is scheduled to be completed in spring 2023.
  • DL&W Station Construction – in the area of DL&W Terminal. This project involves a major redesign of rail infrastructure in the vicinity of DL&W Terminal, followed by the construction of a new Metro Rail station at DL&W. It will continue through at least 2024.

Thank you for your patience. We apologize for any inconvenience this construction may cause to riders.
