MTA Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) crews this weekend will install a new bridge over New Hyde Park Road on the border of New Hyde Park and Garden City in Long Island, New York, to eliminate a grade crossing. 

Over the past several months, crews have been building the new bridge adjacent to the tracks, in preparation for this weekend’s installation. 

MTA aims to eliminate eight at-grade rail crossings by 2022. The bridge installation at New Hyde Park Road is the third bridge to be build as part of the project.

A crossing at nearby South 12th Street is scheduled to be eliminated this fall after work at New Hyde Park Road has been completed and the roadway is reopened for vehicular traffic and pedestrians in September.
