LIRR to replace Cherry Lane Bridge as part of third track expansion project

Cherry Lane Bridge 05-24-19

A Long Island Rail Road plan to replace a 66-year-old bridge in Carle Place will result in a two-day suspension of service along one of the railroad’s busiest stretches, the agency said Thursday.

During the June 1-2 weekend, crews will take down the existing rail bridge carrying the LIRR’s tracks over Cherry Lane in Carle Place and replace it with a newly assembled bridge. The work will require suspending service on the LIRR’s Main Line between Mineola and Hicksville during the 48-hour period.
