One of the bigger efforts in the LIRR Expansion Project “slid into place” last weekend in an unusual feat of engineering, when the LIRR rolled-in the new bridge at the Urban Avenue Grade Crossing Elimination Project in New Cassel. A time lapse video of the work is now available here:

The LIRR Expansion Project is part of a multibillion-dollar modernization of the Long Island Rail Road, the largest investment the railroad has received in decades. Once the work is complete, the LIRR will have increased its capacity by roughly 50 percent. Together, the upgrades will help transform transportation across the region and provide a reliable, state-of-the-art rail system for Long Islanders.
