Modification of South Tyson Avenue Bridge Anticipated to Begin Fall 2018

The modification of South Tyson Avenue Bridge, which has been in service since 1958, is expected to begin Fall 2018. The bridge will be modified to include a new two-track bay bridge. South Tyson Avenue Bridge will be replaced using the method successfully employed at LIRR’s Post Avenue Bridge in Westbury, which was completed over a single weekend in October 2017. The modification of South Tyson Avenue Bridge is part of a broader LIRR initiative to support the growth and development of Long Island.
