MTA Metro-North Railroad's crews today will begin an $800,000 track improvement project on the Waterbury Branch.

Workers will renew the Farrel's Road crossing in Ansonia, Conn., and the Eagle Street Crossing in Waterbury, Conn. Elsewhere along the tracks, crews will cut brush and weld rail joints, Metro-North officials said in a press release.

Scheduled to take place June 9-11 and June 16-18, the work is aimed at ensuring the ongoing reliability and safety of the railroad.

Metro-North will provide buses to substitute trains during the work.
