3TC Showcasing the Many Local Establishments That Continue to Serve the Community Throughout the LIRR Expansion Project
From the start of the LIRR Expansion Project, the commitment to local businesses has been a cornerstone of 3TC’s community outreach. While the work to make historic improvements to our region’s transportation infrastructure has affected some businesses during construction, the 3TC team – which includes our Community Ambassadors – have remained in regular contact with local proprietors, Chambers of Commerce, and elected officials to ensure any impacts that may occur are minimal, and that the short-term disruptions lead to a better, more prosperous future.
Very soon residents and businesses alike will reap the rewards of ongoing improvements in Mineola, including the Main Street and Willis Avenue Grade Crossing Elimination Projects, as well as the Mineola Station Enhancement Project. Once completed, Mineola and surrounding municipalities can expect a quieter, safer and more livable community. While temporary traffic detours, for instance, have occurred in Mineola, the 3TC team has worked with local businesses to keep their doors open, and this spirit of collaboration and partnership will continue through the project’s completion.
As part of these efforts, 3TC recently began printing and placing new banners in Mineola to ensure residents and commuters are aware these establishments are fully open for business. A banner is currently hanging at the intersection of Mineola Boulevard and Washington Avenue and lists a number of local establishments.
In addition to the ongoing outreach and the Mineola banner, 3TC has maintained a dedicated Open for Business page on this website, which serves as a promotional resource for local businesses, listing their hours, contact information, and a link to their website. The page also offers a form where owners can make sure their business is listed on the site.
If you are a local business owner, please continue to visit this website for real-time construction updates. For those with questions and concerns, you can contact us directly through our community hotline (516-203-4955) or via email (CommunityOutreach@LIRRExpansion.com).
