Covert Ave Detour - 02-07-19

The successful temporary detour at Covert Avenue allowed utility relocations in the area to be expedited. The project management team planned the work in advance and worked cooperatively with the Village of New Hyde Park to notify residents of the temporary road closure.

The Covert Avenue grade crossing is being eliminated and reconstructed to provide a two-lane grade-separated underpass with a pedestrian sidewalk on the east side. The grade crossing was re-designed in conjunction with the Village of New Hyde Park and will enhance safety and provide for a quieter and more livable community along the railroad. The project is expected to be completed during fall 2019.
