Improving mass transit, traffic congestion, protecting the environment, and ensuring Long Island’s economic health.
A proposal to provide a more robust and reliable rail service, making living and working on Long Island easier.
On the weekend of October 21-22, the Long Island Rail Road replaced the 103-year-old bridge that carries the Main Line over Post Avenue in Westbury.
The Long Island Rail Road Expansion Project is a new proposal to improve service options and reliability for hundreds of thousands of customers by adding a third track to the congested LIRR Main Line. The project will also reduce automobile traffic congestion by adding train options for travelers and eliminating street-level grade crossings, and it will improve safety and quality of life for people in the project corridor.Learn More

“Long Island’s future prosperity depends on a modern transportation network that eases congestion on our roads and improves service on the LIRR… this is a robust and comprehensive agenda to do just that.”
