Huntington LIRR Station Parking Repairs
By Nolan Cleary
Work is underway at the Huntington LIRR Train Station parking lot. Construction is set to begin September 13th.
"This complete overhaul of the South Parking Lot will add parking and public safety enhancements for our local commuters," stated Huntington Town Supervisor Chad Lupinacci. "These enhancements are among many improvements coming to our commuter parking facilities at the LIRR Huntington Train Station, taking place concurrently with the project to replace the East Pedestrian Bridge."
The planned refurbishment will also feature an expansion. A new sidewalk is part of the plan. Additionally, 29 new parking spots will be added in the process. Changes to lighting, traffic isles and other aspects will be included in the plan as well.
As a result of the refurbishment, the south parking garage will remain closed for a temporary period of approximately two months.
Funding for the project was approved in February. I’m addition, MTA LIRR will also be constructing a new pedestrian bridge, expected to open to the public in 2022.
