Project Overview

The Nostrand Avenue Station has been completely rehabilitated, and new elevators have been added to the station to make it fully ADA-compliant. In addition to new elevators, enhancements to the station include: replacement of station platforms; new railings and a canopy roofing system; replacement of the four overpasses and platform stairs; installation of two new elevators; replacement and upgrades to station lighting; electrical and communication systems; CCTV security cameras; signage and 86 panels of art glass on the platforms.

Construction was completed in January 2020 and is part of a broader effort to modernize LIRR rail stations and spur the economic development of Long Island and the wider region.
