PROJECT DESCRIPTION

"The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) Expansion Project from Floral Park to Hicksville, one of the region’s most significant transportation infrastructure projects, will improve mass transit, reduce traffic congestion, protect the environment, and enhance quality-of-life for communities along the Main Line. Major project elements include the elimination of seven grade crossings, new parking facilities, upgrades to railroad infrastructure and passenger rail stations, and other local improvements" (taken from LIRR Expansion.com).

The project will allow for a better commute, with more reliable train service, station improvements and parking, safer, quieter crossings, overall noise reduction, less congestion and cleaner air, and ultimately allow for better jobs and a stronger economy.
