Project Overview

Carle Place Station was built in 1837 and refurbished in 1990. It services the LIRR Main Line and Port Jefferson Branch and serves 921 weekday customers. As part of the LIRR Expansion Project, the Carle Place station will undergo station enhancements, which were developed in coordination with the community. The station improvements will include: platform removal and replacement to accommodate a new third track; platform canopies; new platform furnishings and accouterments including benches, shelters and signage; CCTV security cameras to improve safety; ADA-compliant mobility improvements including ramps; Wi-Fi; USB charging stations; and digital information displays. The existing overpass will be replaced and will include ADA-accessible elevators. New bike racks and artwork will also be installed, along with the Stonehinge Lane Roundabout to facilitate passenger drop-offs and pick-ups.

With the LIRR Expansion Project, upgrading the Carle Place Station will be important to accommodate a future increase in ridership. Enhancements to Carle Place Station are part of a broader LIRR initiative to strengthen the reliability and resiliency of LIRR infrastructure as well as support the growth and development of Long Island.
