The construction of a third track along a 9.8-mile stretch of the railroad’s heavily traversed Main Line corridor between the Floral Park and Hicksville train stations, and the elimination of the seven street-level train crossings along its route, among other benefits.
What are the project benefits?
Fewer delays and improved reliability for both peak and reverse-peak direction commuters with the extra capacity of a third track. Also, additional parking for railroad commuters and noise reduction from the installation of retaining walls and sound-attenuation walls along tracks in the project corridor.
When will construction begin?
Substantial construction is expected to begin in late 2018 following the completion of design, surveying, mobilization, utility relocations, and other early construction activities. The overall project is expected to be completed by late 2022.
