The Long Island Rail Road’s 10-mile Third Track from Floral Park to Hicksville has been completed.
New York State Gov. Kathy Hochul was at the LIRR’s Westbury station Monday to say that the Third Track – part of the $2.5 billion LIRR Main Line Expansion Project – was completed nearly four years after breaking ground, on schedule and $100 million below budget.
“The completion of the historic Third Track project connects commuters with a more resilient and flexible railroad with frequent service, modern stations, ADA accessibility and more travel opportunities for Long Islanders and visitors,” Hochul said.
