Project Overview

Merillon Avenue Station in Garden City was built in 1912 and reconstructed in 1958. The station services the Main Line and Port Jefferson Branch and serves nearly 1,882 daily customers. As part of the LIRR Expansion Project, Merillon Avenue Station will receive station enhancements developed after extensive consultation with the community. Station improvements will include: platform removal and replacement to accommodate 12-car trains; platform canopies; new platform furnishings and accoutrements including benches, shelters, and signage; CCTV security cameras to improve safety; ADA-compliant mobility improvements including elevators and ramps; free public Wi-Fi; USB charging stations and digital information displays. New bike racks and art will also be installed.

With the LIRR Expansion Project, upgrading Merillon Avenue Station will be an important step to accommodating a future increase in ridership. Enhancements to Merillon Avenue Station are part of a broader LIRR initiative to strengthen the reliability and resiliency of LIRR infrastructure as well as support the growth and development of Long Island.
