Design-Build Contractor 3rd Track Constructors (3TC) recently put finishes on the roadway underpass walls, getting one step closer to the LIRR bridge roll-in scheduled for next month. The newly constructed bridge will hold three tracks to support the Main Line Expansion Project running through this area and enabling the elimination of the grade. These finishes follow the recent successful concrete pour at the site. Construction began at the project on March 8, 2019.
Urban Avenue is one of eight grade crossings to be eliminated as part of the LIRR Expansion Project Floral Park to Hicksville, all of which will save commuters and community residents time, enhance safety and reduce vehicle emissions. At Urban Avenue, the LIRR bridge which will span the underpass is currently under construction on site and will be rolled into place in July 2019, with roadway construction expected to be completed in September 2019.
