LIRR Expansion Project - Limited Road Closure Coming This Week to Covert Avenue in New Hyde Park

Progress is being made on the LIRR Expansion Project and 3rd Track Constructors (3TC) wants to make sure that you’re aware of a road closure in New Hyde Park, which is needed to accommodate the Covert Avenue Grade Crossing Elimination Project.

 

On Monday, April 15, 2019, a long-term closure of Covert Avenue, between 1st Avenue and 5th Avenue, will begin. The closure will last for approximately six months.

 

Detours, created in coordination with Nassau County and Village officials, have been established to help get around the closure.

·            Vehicles heading in either direction will be directed to take the following roads around the closure: Jericho Turnpike, Tulip Avenue, Covert Avenue (south of 10th Avenue), Stewart Avenue, and New Hyde Park Road.

·            Commercial trucks heading in either direction will be directed to take the following roads around the closure: Jericho Turnpike, Tulip Avenue, and New Hyde Park Road.

 

Please see the maps below for details.
