Project Overview

Port Jefferson Station, located on the Port Jefferson Branch, serves 1,375 weekday riders. The station has received several enhancements, including a rehabilitated station house waiting area, which opened in July 2018, and restroom facilities. The waiting area has been outfitted with free public Wi-Fi, charging stations and updated information displays.

The station building exterior has been renewed, and the exterior station environment has been enhanced by a reconfiguration of the plaza area, which improves customer flow, and parking improvements. The installation of platform railings and a shelter shed, the addition of new signage, and the installation of an outdoor sculpture in the plaza are underway, with expected completion by the end of February 2019.
