The LIRR Expansion Project from Floral Park to Hicksville entails the improvement, upgrading, and replacement of several critical infrastructure elements along the main line.
The elements that are closest to our community include:
- Grade crossing eliminations including Covert Avenue, S. 12th St. and New Hyde Park Rd.
- Station improvements including the New Hyde Park station
The Project Overview offers the following benefits: a better commute, safer and quieter crossings, improvements to stations and parking facilities, reduced noise along the project corridor, less congestion and cleaner air.
The LIRR Project Team has engaged in an unprecedented level of public outreach, with a broad range of individuals and organizations, including community groups, elected and appointed officials, businesses, and residents.
