On June 26th, LIRR Expansion Project Officials accompanied members of Right Track for Long Island Coalition on a tour of the eastern half of the project corridor. The group viewed ongoing construction activities, including work at Carle Place Station and Urban Avenue grade crossing.
Right Track for Long Island Coalition is a grassroots nonprofit collaboration of major organizations, institutions, businesses and individuals representing over 500,000 Long Islanders, and growing, that have come together to support the LIRR Expansion Project.
The construction of a third track from Floral Park to Hicksville will reduce train congestion and delays and enable true bi-directional service during peak hours with a more reliable rail network. This transformative work includes several related projects, including the construction of parking garages, retaining walls, improvements to rail bridges and the removal of seven street-level grade crossings.
