Hartford Line Weekend Schedule Adjustments to Accommodate Amtrak’s Grade Crossing Renewal Project

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is alerting customers of the upcoming temporary weekend train service adjustment effective in April and the first weekend of May on the Hartford Line (HL). No schedule changes will be in effect the weekend of April 20-21. This service adjustment is to accommodate Amtrak’s Grade Crossing Renewal project on Britannia Street and North Colony Street in Meriden. This project involves installing new concrete crossing pads that allow for vehicles to cross and ensures the crossing remains in a state of good repair.

Please note that these adjustments may alter train schedules by as much as 20 minutes, connecting trains may differ, and may impact boarding assignments at station platforms.

Trains with schedule adjustments of 10 minutes or more include:

Weekend Northbound

  • CTrail 6454 departing New Haven Union Station at 12:15 p.m., 15 minutes later.
  • Amtrak 416 departing New Haven Union Station at 8:10 p.m., 20 minutes later.

Weekend Southbound

  • Amtrak 461 arriving at New Haven Union Station at 11:46 a.m., 10 minutes earlier.
  • Amtrak 409 arriving at New Haven Union Station at 2:09 p.m., 10 minutes earlier.

Additional train schedules may have modifications of five minutes or less. Passengers can find the latest Hartford Line schedule here and are encouraged to visit HartfordLine.com or Amtrak.com for the latest service information and scheduled departure times.
