Project Overview

Construction at Stewart Manor Station, on the Hempstead Branch, has been completed, and both station platforms have been replaced. The first phase of construction, completed in August 2017, was dedicated to renovating the interior and exterior of the building and rehabilitating the pedestrian underpass; the second phase of construction entailed enhancements to the platform environment and improvements to enrich the customer experience. The new platforms are now equipped with shelters featuring CCTV security cameras, LED lighting, MTA help points, new signage, permanent artwork and Wi-Fi. New light poles, stairs, concrete work and speaker systems have been installed on the platforms to improve station announcements and customer communications.

The replacement work was done in four consecutive stages to prevent full closure on either side of the station: a portion of each platform always remained accessible to customers at all times to board and disembark from trains in both directions. The replacement of the platforms at Stewart Manor and the enhancements to the station are part of a broader LIRR initiative to strengthen and support the growth and development of Long Island.
