The LIRR Expansion Project from Floral Park to Hicksville, one of the region’s most significant transportation infrastructure projects, will improve mass transit, reduce traffic congestion, protect the environment, and enhance quality-of-life for communities along the Main Line. Major project elements include the elimination of seven grade crossings, new parking facilities, upgrades to railroad infrastructure and passenger rail stations, and other local improvements.
Reducing delays and improving commutes for more than 300,000 riders per day
The completed project will enable more robust and reliable rail service, make living and working on Long Island easier and ensure the region’s economic prosperity now and for the next century. The project began in January 2018 and is anticipated to be completed by late 2022.
The LIRR Expansion Project team is working hard to mitigate disruptions to local citizens and businesses. If you are a business owner in or near the project corridor, we want to ensure the continual health of your operations. We have gathered resources and contact information specifically to meet your needs.
