Today is the day. The closure of Urban Avenue to begin the elimination of the grade-level crossing will begin late this afternoon and is expected to last 6 months.
In a final push to get the word out, 3rd Track Constructor’s (3TC) New Cassel Community Ambassadors distributed 5,000 flyers at five area schools in the Westbury Union Free School District, ensuring that the students were aware of the closure and that they could help inform their families.
3TC has efforts underway to minimize the impact of this construction on the surrounding neighborhood, including a planned shuttle route to take pedestrians around the closure and a detour plan, coordinated with County and Town officials, for drivers in the area.
Should you have any lingering questions about these plans, please review the flyers linked to below. As always, you can reach your Community Ambassador through our 24/7 Hotline: 516-203-4955 or via email at CommunityOutreach@LIRRExpansion.com.
