[ARCHIVED] Message About Upcoming Work from the LIRR

Please see the following message from the Long Island Railroad regarding work in Wyandanch:

Starting on or after Tuesday, January 23, and continuing through Thursday, January 25, The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) will install a segment of new track in the vicinity of Wyandanch, in the Town of Babylon, through Farmingdale requiring temporary closures at grade crossings.  This work is being performed as part of the LIRR Double Track Project which will improve service and reliability on the LIRR’s Ronkonkoma Branch and spur economic activity.  It will reduce delays and enable more off peak service in both directions.
