MTA Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) has selected Fortunato Sons Contracting Inc. as the primary contractor for a $23.9 million modernization project at a station in Wantagh, N.Y.
Financed by MTA's capital program, the project calls for a host of improvements, including a new concrete platform, a segmented canopy, a platform waiting room, an escalator and an elevator. The work will mark the first significant upgrade of the facility since it was built nearly 50 years ago, MTA officials said in a press release.In addition, the elevator will make the station compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act for the first time. The project is expected to take two years to finish. Fortunato Sons Contracting has completed two other LIRR projects in recent years: the Massapequa Station platform rehabilitation and the construction of the railroad's new train wash facility in Babylon, N.Y.
