CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - There’s light at the end of the tunnel for commuters who have had to put up with revised PATCO schedules due to track work.

Delaware River Port Authority officials say a nearly two-year rehabilitation project on the Ben Franklin Bridge that has slowed New Jersey-to-Philadelphia trains will be finished by the end of the year and rail service will return to normal.

The $103 million infrastructure upgrade began in 2013 and has affected schedules. Recently, PATCO’s leaf season schedule has caused delays on the rail line.

PATCO will return to a regular schedule Monday through Thursday morning, with a modified schedule Thursday afternoon through Sunday for the final stages of the project. The modified schedule will end in about three weeks.
