Massapequa Station Platform Replacement – Phase 1B: Summer 2013 – Spring 2014
Project Begins Changes in Parking/Platform Access
How Will This Affect Your Commute?
The next phase (1B) of the Massapequa platform project begins on Wednesday, August 21. Phase 1B is
expected to continue through early spring 2014. Customers should expect the following during this phase
of the work:
- An additional section of the western half of the platform will be closed for demolition and reconstruction.
- 6 cars will platform instead of the current 8 cars. Westbound customers will board the last six cars of their trains and eastbound customers will board/exit in the first six cars.
- Existing elevator will be closed and demolished, to make way for a new elevator.
- The stairs adjacent to the Ticket Office will be closed.
- Customers can access the platform from the east underpass staircases.
- Handicapped parking along the south sidewalk will be relocated to the north side of the underpass.
- 12 parking spaces will be temporarily used to accommodate the relocated handicapped spaces.
- An additional 20 parking spaces adjacent to the south sidewalk will be temporarily used to accommodate the staging of construction materials/equipment.
- Mobility impaired customers who require an elevator are advised to use Seaford Station or Bellmore Station for elevator access. Free unrestricted parking is available at the west end of Seaford Station. All parking at Bellmore Station is free and unrestricted.
