Project Overview

The Glen Cove Road Bridge, built in 1942 and located in the Town of North Hempstead along the LIRR Main Line, was removed and replaced with a three-track structure. The replaced bridge will accommodate the new third track on the Main Line, which will help to strengthen the reliability and resiliency of the LIRR system.

Glen Cove Bridge was replaced using the method successfully employed at LIRR’s Post Avenue Bridge in Westbury, which was completed over a single weekend in October 2017. This effort is part of the broader LIRR Expansion Project, which began in 2018.
