LIRR Expansion Project Steps Forward

If you live on Long Island, your train ride just got one step closer to being safer and more reliable. Yesterday, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced major steps forward for the Long Island Rail Road Expansion Project. The governor noted in a statement that there will be four public meetings, expedited modifications to all train crossings along the project route, and increased transparency with the release of a new project scoping report, website and community center. Cuomo stated, “A third track on the main line is crucial to the future of Long Island,” he added, “This project will make the LIRR more reliable for millions of customers, while also eliminating multiple dangerous train crossings along the main line.” If you would like to read the “draft scoping document” or know more about the project you can go to www.AModernLI.com – a website designed for keeping the public informed and you can also provide direct input.
