LIRR Expansion Project Design-Build Contractor 3rd Track Constructors’ (3TC) community ambassadors to North Hempstead, Seth Sylvan and Gary Lewi, visited New Cassel residents door-to-door to inform them of upcoming construction activities, including the elimination of the Urban Avenue grade crossing. Door-to-door canvassing in North Hempstead is part of the Expansion Project team’s ongoing commitment to Expansion Project communities.
In consultation with the Town of North Hempstead, the Urban Avenue grade crossing is being reconstructed to accommodate a two-way grade separated underpass with a pedestrian sidewalk on the west side. Railroad Avenue will bridge over the underpass and remain connected. The grade crossing reconstruction is expected to be completed by mid-2019.
