The LIRR Expansion Project has had its fair share of significant firsts for Long Island, New York, and the country. For example, a unique and innovative engineering method used in other parts of the world, the box-jacking system, is being utilized for the first time in the history of the United States on our transformative project. Already used at the completed Covert and Urban Avenue Grade Crossing Elimination Projects, the system will also be deployed at the remaining six grade crossing elimination projects along the LIRR Main Line.
