Buckram Road Bridge Replacement Project Is Substantially Complete

The Buckram Road Bridge Replacement Project is substantially complete, with only punchlist items remaining.

LIRR crews replaced the existing bridge in early October. This project is an important component of LIRR efforts to improve safety and on-time-performance and reduce train delays, as raising the height of bridges is a proven way to reduce truck strikes that delay trains. Fewer truck strikes means fewer train delays and better on-time-performance for LIRR customers.
