LIRR Workers Will Be Renewing Grade Crossings & Replacing Track Ties

Greenport, NY - August 29, 2014 - Buses will replace weekday trains between Greenport and Ronkonkoma during off-peak, midday hours beginning next Tuesday, September 2 and continuing through Friday, November 14 to allow the LIRR to renew grade crossings and replace track ties along the route.
 
Railroad crews will be replacing wood ties from Ronkonkoma to Riverhead and renewing grade crossings at Yaphank-Moriches Road and Bellport Avenue, both in Yaphank, Love Lane in Mattituck and Mill Road crossing in Riverhead. This work is part of a $50 million federally funded Annual State of Good Repair Track Program.
 
As a result, the single track between Ronkonkoma and Greenport will be out of service weekdays from 9 AM until 3:50 p.m. requiring cancelation of two westbound trains and two eastbound trains. Instead, customers will board buses or vans at the following adjusted departure times:
