Mineola Chamber of Commerce - 02-19-19The LIRR Expansion Project team continues to meet with business owners throughout the project corridor. The team presented a project update to the Mineola Chamber of Commerce, discussed ongoing construction activities in the Village of Mineola, what to expect in the coming months, and resources available for businesses affected by construction. Approximately 50 people attended this informative event. Business owners along the LIRR Expansion Project corridor are encouraged to sign up for design-build contractor 3rd Track Constructors’ notifications and to learn more about 3TC’s “Open for Business” program.

As part of the LIRR Expansion Project from Floral Park to Hicksville, a new five-level, 551-space parking garage is being constructed at Mineola Station west of Mineola Boulevard between Harrison Avenue and First Street, replacing the surface parking area. The new garage will represent a net increase of 446 parking spaces serving the Mineola Station. The new garage will serve both LIRR commuters and Downtown Mineola.

The operation of a parking garage at this location is consistent with Mineola’s most recent parking study. The new Mineola Harrison Avenue parking structure will help accommodate a future increase in capacity on the LIRR.
