Rebar Installed at Urban Avenue Underpass Roadbed

Urban Avenue Grade Crossing Elimination 05-10-19

Workers have installed rebar on what will be the roadbed of the Urban Avenue underpass on the south side of the LIRR Main Line.  Now that rebar has been installed, asphalt and concrete will be added to the roadbed as foundation for the new, depressed roadway.

A bridge will span the underpass on Railroad Avenue, east to west, to enable the vehicles to pass over the new depressed roadway. This reconstructed grade crossing was designed in conjunction with the Town of North Hempstead to enhance safety and provide for a quieter and more livable community along the railroad.
