The Long Island Railroad is beginning preparations for the proposed third track project.
Over the next few days, the contractors for the third track project will be installing access gates at four locations on the LIRR right-of-way.
These locations are:
• Terrace Avenue, east of Plainfield
• Hanover Street
• North Street
After these access gates are installed and within the next few weeks, the contractors will begin “clearing and grubbing” (shrub and weed removal) along the third track right-of-way in preparation for the project.
Representatives from 3TC, the contractors chosen to perform the third track work, have assured us that they will be reaching out to all residents who may be impacted while this project moves forward.
The hotline phone number for the third track project that 3TC has established is 516-203-4955.
The Village of Floral Park will post updates at fpvillage.org.
