Local pols and LIRR officials celebrated the grand opening of the new Queens Village LIRR Station.

The Queens Village Long Island Railroad (LIRR) station received a multi-million dollar makeover, which is just the beginning in improving access to stations throughout southeast Queens.

The current station building, opened in 1924, was renovated through an $8.5 million project and features two new elevators, one serving the eastbound platform and the other serving the westbound platform. The building was repainted, new signage was added, as well as a new fire alarm system. The platform waiting room was redone and improvements such as new railings and lighting were made.

“The improvements we’ve been able to achieve here are a direct result of New York State’s ongoing commitment to support the MTA Capital Program,” said Helena Williams, LIRR president. “Our infrastructure needs continual reinvestment to stay in a state of good repair, and our customers here can attest to how much of an improvement they’ll experience throughout this renewed station.”
