MTA Buses Again Replace Trains Between Port Jefferson and Huntington for Installation of New Concrete Ties

Published on : Saturday, June 13, 2015

MTA-RailThe Long Island Rail Road wants to remind Port Jefferson Branch customers that buses will again replace trains between Port Jefferson and Huntington over the weekend of Saturday, June 13, and Sunday, June 14, as the LIRR resumes the installation of new concrete ties along that stretch of track. As a result, service along the route will be reduced from every 90 minutes to every two hours, and buses connect to alternate trains.

 

The service change is similar to what took place the weekend of May 30-31, and will take place again on four subsequent weekends this summer. The installation work, which got underway in March, will also impact travel between Huntington and Hicksville where service will be reduced from half-hourly to hourly.

 

Customers boarding at New Hyde Park or Carle Place must change at Hicksville to continue east. They should expect up to 30 minutes of additional travel time. Westbound passengers going to Westbury or Merillon Ave must change trains at Hicksville too. Also, some eastbound trains are on adjusted schedules.

 

The project is requiring the eastern Port Jefferson Branch’s single track to be out of service on the weekends of May 30-31, June 13-14, 20-21, 27-28, July 11-12 and 18-19.
