Project Overview

The Flushing Main Street Bridge, built in 1913, is in Flushing, Queens, and serves the Port Washington Branch, carrying two Port Washington Branch tracks over five lanes of vehicular traffic. The bridge has experienced years of deterioration and rehabilitation was necessary to reduce maintenance, prolong the life of the structure and prevent emergency steel repairs. The LIRR has rehabilitated the bridge, including steel rehabilitation and removal of loose concrete from deck underside. The project began in April 2017 and was substantially completed as of December 2018, with remaining work to be completed by fall 2019.
