On April 24th, the LIRR Expansion Project team hosted the monthly Mayors’ meeting at the LIRR Expansion Project Community Information Center in Mineola. Village and Town officials throughout the Project corridor convened to discuss ongoing construction activities:
- Tom McGuinness, MTACC Deputy Project Director, discussed recent construction milestones and provided an overview of upcoming work.
- Chris Mezzanotte, Retaining and Sound Wall Area Manager for 3TC, provided an update on the construction of retaining walls throughout the Project corridor.
- Brent Malcolm, Traffic Engineer for Design-Build Contractor 3TC, discussed the ongoing road closures and traffic detours at Covert Avenue Grade Crossing in New Hyde Park, Urban Avenue Grade Crossing in New Cassel, and Cherry Lane Bridge in Carle Place.
- Tim Keller, Deputy Operations Manager, presented the latest information regarding work on the LIRR right-of-way throughout the Project corridor.
The monthly Mayors’ meetings continue to be a productive space for local elected officials and Town and Village administrators to ask the Project team questions about construction activities and discuss the latest project milestones.
