Westbury, NY - February 15, 2018 - Assemblyman Michael Montesano (R,C,Ref-Glen Head) would like to inform Long Island residents that the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) will be closing down the Urban Avenue grade crossing in Westbury from Friday, February 23 at 10 p.m. to Saturday, February 24 at 11:30 p.m. During this time, a new concrete grade crossing will be installed with temporary paving until permanent repaving can be done at a later date. The MTA Police Department will be present to help direct traffic and the MTA apologizes for any construction related noise that might disturb residents.
 
“With the enormous amount of frustration the LIRR has caused for Long Islanders in the past few months, it is good to see that improvements are being made,” said Montesano. “I hope the MTA will continue to update its systems to make riding the LIRR more pleasurable and less hectic for commuters.”
