Buses Replace Trains on Eastern Montauk Line
Buses are replacing Long Island Rail Road trains between Speonk and Montauk from Tuesday though Friday while workers renovate three Hampton Bays bridges as a part of a $22.4 million ongoing project.
The MTA started the project in 2011 to add another 40 years to the life of the Shinnecock Canal Bridge, North Highway Bridge and the Montauk Highway Bridge, all of which were built about a century ago.
The work is expected to impact about 400 daily weekday riders in each direction, who should expect delays and plan for buses to take 40 minutes longer than regularly scheduled trains.
LIRR crews will also use the South Fork service suspension to rebuild railroad crossing on Montauk Highway near Flying Point Road as a part of a planned road widening project.
