Metro-North to rehab three more Hudson Line stations


MTA Metro-North Railroad’s Hudson Line station rehabilitation program marches on. Work now is beginning at the Ossining, Scarborough and Philipse Manor stations.

The agency will spend $67 million to upgrade the stations. Work includes new platforms, canopies, shelters, enclosed staircases, lighting, benches, public-address systems, audio-visual information systems and trash receptacles.

So far, Metro-North has rebuilt 13 Hudson Line stations.

In a separate but related project, the agency plans to restore the architectural integrity of Tarrytown Station. The project calls for stabilizing the foundation, rebuilding three roof dormers and replacing the roof, refurbishing or replacing windows, restoring exterior columns and eaves, and replacing copper gutters and leaders. In January, the State Historic Preservation Office of the new York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation will review the design plan. Work is scheduled to begin in summer.
