New Jersey lawmakers grilled the head of Amtrak about recent disruptions in rail service and the planned acceleration of projects to replace some tracks.
Senator Bob Gordon questioned Amtrak CEO Wick Moorman on how the work will affect commuters.
"How many tracks are going to be shut down? What does that mean in terms of commuter delays?"
"We can't answer your question until we have gone over that plan with New Jersey Transit and Long Island Railroad and what they would prefer to see in order to minimize the impact to their passengers.”
