NORWALK, Conn. - Traffic at the South Norwalk Train Station will be directed to travel one way entering on Monroe Street, according to officials.

The move is to help buses enter the street, load passengers from New Haven-bound trains and then exit the area to bring those passengers to stations to the east.

Traffic started to be directed one way at 3 p.m. Monday and will continue until 10 p.m. Norwalk officials did not say definitively that this will continue for additional days, but that possibly could be the case.

The buses and redirection of traffic on Monroe Street are the result of the suspension of rail service between South Norwalk and Bridgeport following the train derailment and crash Friday at the Bridgeport/Fairfield border. Repairs to the tracks are expected to take at least a couple of days.

More than 60 buses are expected to be utilized to transfer commuters to stations east of South Norwalk, such as Westport and Fairfield.

Additional Norwalk and Metropolitan Transportation Authority police have been deployed to the South Norwalk station for crowd control, and will be on-site throughout the week. MTA personnel will also be on-hand to help direct passengers to the correct buses.
