Project Overview

Port Jefferson Station, located on the Port Jefferson Branch, serves 1,375 weekday riders. The station has received several enhancements, including a rehabilitated station house waiting area, which opened in July 2018, and restroom facilities. The waiting area has been outfitted with free public Wi-Fi, charging stations and updated information displays.

The station building exterior has been renewed, and the exterior station environment has been enhanced by a reconfiguration of the plaza area, which improves customer flow, and parking improvements. The installation of platform railings and a shelter shed, the addition of new signage, and the installation of an outdoor sculpture in the plaza are underway, with expected completion by the end of February 2019.

Enhancements to the Port Jefferson Station are part of an expansive LIRR undertaking to improve customer experiences and infrastructure throughout Long Island and to support greater economic growth in the region.
