Project Overview

Laurelton Station is on the Far Rockaway Branch on 224th Street and 141st Road just east of Springfield Boulevard, where it serves approximately 1,900 customers each weekday.  The station was originally built by the LIRR in 1907 as an at-grade station. In November 1941, work began on reconstruction of the station as part of an intended grade-crossing elimination, but the project was canceled in March 1942 due to World War II.  Between 1947 and 1950 the at-grade station was demolished, and a new elevated station was constructed in conjunction with the grade-crossing elimination. 

Beginning in December 2018 repairs were begun at Laurelton Station to improve and modernize the station and its environment, including:

  • Platform repairs
  • Replacement of doors and windows in waiting room to improve customer comfort and energy efficiency
  • Staircase rehabilitation at three (3) staircases, including installation of new threads
  • Replacement of canopy roofs
  • Installation of new LED Lights
  • Painting of canopy beams and columns

The LIRR has is improving and modernizing Laurelton Station to improve the experience for its customers and to contribute to the economic growth and development of Long Island.
