Long Island Railroad – Third Track Project
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced this week that on October 21-22, the Long Island Rail Road will replace the railroad’s 103-year-old bridge that carries the Main Line over Post Avenue at the Westbury train station, allowing the Main Line Expansion Project to move forward. The new bridge will be 13 feet wider than the existing bridge in order to accommodate the Third Track and will mark the first completed Third Track-related project since the Main Line Expansion Project was approved in July after 70 years of stagnation. The $9.7 million bridge project utilizes a design-build contract to expedite the timetable of the project, which is on track to be on time and on budget.
