MELVILLE, Long Island (WABC) — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is proposing eliminating some railroad crossings as part of his planned $1 billion third track expansion to the LIRR’s main line between Floral Park and Hicksville.
Officials from villages along the Long Island Rail Road’s Main Line went to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Manhattan office Friday afternoon thinking they’d be discussing Cuomo’s plans for a third LIRR track with one of his aides and the heads of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the Long Island Rail Road.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo today laid out an ambitious transportation plan including a third track for nearly 10 miles of the Long Island Rail Road, as well as studying a new tunnel linking Long Island to other regions and allowing international air traffic at Long Island MacArthur Airport.
