YONKERS - Heavy rains have led to a mudslide in Yonkers that caused delays for Metro-North.

A retention wall partially collapsed yesterday along Warburton Avenue, causing mud and rocks to slide onto the Glenwood Station tracks.

Two of the four tracks were out of commission for the morning commute. One of the two closed tracks reopened at around 11 a.m., but the other remains covered in mud. Northbound trains are once again making stops at the Riverdale, Ludlow, Glenwood and Greystone stations.

Engineers continue to examine the stability of the high ground adjacent to the tracks along the Hudson Line. No estimates have been given on when the fourth track will be back in service.

Metro-North says it will continue using bridge plates at the four stations impacted by the mudslide. Officials say it will take a couple of months to repair the problem.
