Project Overview

Mineola Station on the Main Line of the LIRR serves nearly 14,000 customers daily. All trains for the Port Jefferson, Ronkonkoma and Oyster Bay branches run through Mineola Station, as well as a few for the Montauk Branch. The station sits adjacent to the Mineola Intermodal Center, operated by Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE) Bus. As a part of the LIRR Expansion Project from Floral Park to Hicksville, improvements to this important stop on the Main Line will include: platform removal and replacement to accommodate 12-car trains; refurbished station building on the north side of the westbound platform; demolition of the south-side waiting room; platform canopies; new platform furnishings and accoutrements including standing/leaning benches, shelters and signage; CCTV security cameras to improve safety; Wi-Fi; USB charging stations; and digital information displays. At-grade access to the station platforms will be maintained.

Additionally, the existing pedestrian overpass near the Mineola Station building will be replaced and a new pedestrian overpass, including two elevators, will be built in conjunction with the closure of Main Street. The current overpass with elevators will also be maintained. New bike racks and art will also be installed.

Enhancements to Mineola Station are part the LIRR Expansion Project from Floral Park to Hicksville, as well as part of a broader LIRR initiative to strengthen the reliability and resiliency of LIRR infrastructure.
