MTA Capital Construction and the Long Island Rail Road want your input! Construction of the LIRR Expansion Project from Floral Park to Hicksville is well underway. As part of this Project, MTACC/LIRR have developed a series of environmental and community commitments in coordination with the Project-adjacent communities to minimize construction-related impacts. MTACC/LIRR have established the Design-Builder Incentive Program, a monetary fund to incentivize 3rd Track Constructors (3TC), the Project’s Design-Builder, to adhere to these commitments.
We invite you to participate in the Design-Builder Incentive Program’s Community Scorecard and provide your input on 3TC’s performance during the third quarter of 2019 (July 1, 2019 through September 30, 2019). Your feedback helps determine whether 3TC earns the incentive payment for this quarter. In addition, your input is instrumental in improving construction mitigation techniques, as well as project outreach efforts.
If you live within approximately 400 feet of a project element, a Community Scorecard has been mailed to your home. Please follow the directions on the cover letter to complete a copy of the Community Scorecard that was sent to your residence. If you live outside this radius, we invite you to complete the Community Scorecard available online at the following link:
Residents and commuters along the Main Line corridor have long sought a mass transit solution to reduce road congestion, improve safety and provide an appealing alternative to driving – all with minimal disruption to existing train services and without residential property takings.
The construction of a third track from Floral Park to Hicksville will reduce train congestion and delays and enable true bi-directional service during peak hours with a more reliable rail network. This transformative work includes several related projects, including the construction of parking garages, retaining walls, improvements to rail bridges and the removal of eight street-level grade crossings. Construction is being managed to minimize the impact on daily routines, with extensive mitigation and public outreach efforts in local communities.
