    Rail Delays Are Still Lingering in Wake of Storms. How Bad Will Your Commute Be?
    PATCO
    A tree took down power lines and blocked PATCO tracks after storms on July 22.

    Trees down. Power out. Construction: Storms left their mark on regional transit systems lasting into the Wednesday morning commute.

    So how will your ride to work be Wednesday?

    Monday night’s severe storms took down a large tree and utility poles that halted service on parts of PATCO and NJ Transit’s Atlantic City Line into the Wednesday commute. 

    SEPTA’s delays were caused by various issues including mechanical, signal and crossing problems. These delays are in addition to the schedule changes and shuttle buses brought by the Southwest Connection Improvement project.

    Here is the latest on rail service in our area:
