Project Overview

Built in 1837, the Westbury Station is on the Long Island Rail Road’s Main Line. All trains for the Port Jefferson Branch and Ronkonkoma Branch run through this station; however, with only limited stops. The Westbury Station serves nearly 4,000 riders daily.

As part of the LIRR Expansion Project from Floral Park to Hicksville, the station will undergo improvements that were developed in consultation with the local community. The station improvements will include: platform replacement to accommodate a new third track; platform canopies; new platform furnishings and accoutrements including benches, shelters and signage; CCTV security cameras to improve safety; an extension of the Westbury Station pedestrian tunnel; ADA-compliant mobility improvements including elevators, ramps and overpasses; Wi-Fi; USB charging stations; digital information displays; and a low-maintenance pocket park near Post Avenue. The interior and exterior of the station building will be renovated. New bike racks and artwork will also be installed.

In conjunction with the LIRR Expansion Project, upgrading Westbury Station will be important to accommodate a future increase in ridership. Enhancements to Westbury Station are part of a broader LIRR initiative to strengthen the reliability and resiliency of LIRR infrastructure as well as support the growth and development of Long Island.
