Enhancements to the Port Jefferson Station are underway, and the interior lighting has been updated. A sequence of improvements are planned in the next upcoming weeks as part of a broader MTA LIRR initiative to support the growth and development of Long Island.
The MTA LIRR has completed the installation of 64 exterior USB charging ports and 24 interior USB charging ports in the waiting room of the East Hampton station. All 86 USB charging ports are fully functional and operating.
Construction is underway for the Stewart Manor station enhancements such as rehabilitated sidewalks, ramps, and shelter shed improvements. Rehabilitating the space around the stations is a priority for MTA LIRR and important to accommodate future increases in ridership.
The west end of Platform B, on the south side up to the underpass, will be closed to the public starting on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, until mid-March 2018. During this time, customers should be prepared to board the first four cars when going eastbound and the last four cars while traveling westbound. Pedestrian traffic will be limited in certain areas; however, construction will not impact train service or local traffic as all work will take place on LIRR property.
Work to install the first of two new platforms at Stewart Manor will begin January 16, 2018. To fully replace both platforms, the work will be completed in four consecutive phases. Customers will be able to board and disembark trains in both directions at all times for the duration of all phases of the project, as crews will work on one half of one platform at a time.
