On March 20th, the LIRR Expansion Project team provided an update to the Carle Place Civic Association regarding current construction activities in Carle Place, including the enhancement of Carle Place Station and the replacement of Cherry Lane Bridge, as well as ongoing community coordination efforts to keep local businesses and residents informed.
As part of the LIRR Expansion Project, the Carle Place station is undergoing extensive station enhancements which were developed in coordination with the community. Additionally, the existing overpass is being replaced and will include ADA-accessible elevators.
The Cherry Lane Bridge will be replaced and elevated, providing sufficient clearance for trucks to safely pass underneath it. This will eliminate accidents due to truck strikes and avoid unnecesarry train delays in both directions. Cherry Lane Bridge will be replaced using the method successfully employed at LIRR’s Post Avenue Bridge in Westbury, which was completed over a single weekend in October 2017.
These efforts are part of the broader LIRR Expansion Project, which began in 2018. For more information please visit the LIRR Expansion Project Floral Park to Hicksville page on AModernLI.com – http://www.amodernli.com/project/thirdtrack/.
