Look what’s been making its way around the project corridor: it’s our very own street sweeper! Aimed at cleaning streets from dust and debris caused by construction on the LIRR Expansion Project, the branded AModernLI street sweeper is making its rounds through the project-adjacent communities to keep streets clear of dirt and debris, helping maintain community quality-of-life for residents. Consistent with community commitments developed in close coordination with the project-adjacent neighborhoods, street sweeping has taken place regularly since the project began.
Thanks to some colorful, branded shrink wrap, the sweeper recently got a dramatic makeover. And since the upgraded vehicle made its debut at the Nassau Boulevard Bridge Replacement weekend back in October 2019, we’ve seen an uptick in questions…Where does it go? Does it run on a schedule? Who drives it? How does it work? How much waste does it collect? We’ll be talking to folks in charge of the sweeper, so stay tuned for all those details and more! In the meantime, keep an eye out for the project street sweeper in your neighborhood!
The LIRR Expansion Project team holds true to its community commitments, developed comprehensively during planning phase, through close coordination with residents and local organizations. Among these commitments are the implementation of robust environmental programs focused on minimizing dust, debris, noise and vibration during construction. Street cleaning throughout the project corridor is a positive example of those commitments in action.
