Improvements are in the works for Long Island Rail Road commuters in Little Neck.
Repairs began on March 19 at the commuter parking lot at the Little Neck station, which is part of the Port Washington Line.
Slated improvements for the transit hub at the Little Neck Parkway and 39th Road include repaving, striping, and sidewalk, curb and drainage improvements. Work will continue into mid-May.
Construction work will mainly take place on weekdays and only a portion of the parking lot will remain open. Parking will be limited for commuters: up to 19 fewer spaces will be available for use at the lot. There are approximately 100 total spaces.
The lot will be completely closed on April 27-29 and May 4-5.
Alternate commuter parking is available at the Douglaston Station, located at 235th Street and 41st Avenue. Additional bus and taxi service information can be found here.
The pedestrian overpass at the east end of the station will also be unavailable for the duration of construction.
The parking lot is privately operated. Residents looking for additional information should call 511 and say “LIRR” or visit the LIRR website.
Improvements are currently in the works at other stations along the LIRR’s Port Washington branch. Construction began this month on two new elevators at the Murray Hill station, located at 150th Street and 41st Avenue. The Flushing-Main Street LIRR station is currently undergoing a $24.6 million overhaul.
