WASHINGTON (WCAX) - New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is demanding a plan of action to avoid service disruptions on the Amtrak Adirondack line.

Stefanik sent a letter to Amtrak and the Canadian National Railway on Monday. It comes after Canadian National Railway implemented safety restrictions of 10 mph in June, which shut down service due to concerns about track conditions when the temperatures went above 86 degrees. That means service north of Saratoga Springs was shut down for 79 days.

Stefanik says despite three years of stopped summer service, Amtrak and Canadian National Railway have no plan to make the needed fixes.
