Modernization and Improvement of Laurelton Station Expected to Be Completed This Summer

Laurelton Station is being improved and modernized. LED lighting has been installed, as has a new canopy roof and new doors to the waiting room. The rehabilitation of staircases is ongoing.

Laurelton Station is on the Far Rockaway Branch on 224th Street and 141st Road just east of Springfield Boulevard, where it serves approximately 1,900 customers each weekday.  The station was originally built by the LIRR in 1907 as an at-grade station. In November 1941, work began on reconstruction of the station as part of an intended grade-crossing elimination, but the project was canceled in March 1942 due to World War II.  Between 1947 and 1950 the at-grade station was demolished, and a new elevated station was constructed in conjunction with the grade-crossing elimination.
