Starting in March 2018, as part of a $135 million Metro-North Station Improvement Initiative funded through the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Capital Program, construction is expected to continue to Q1 2021.

The project has been planned in phases to minimize disruption of your commute and enable you to move as easily as possible around the station and platforms.


Major changes to the station include:Station Improvement Collage

  • New side platform with radiant heat flooring for snow/ice control;
  • New replacement heated stairs from side platform;
  • New elevator at main entrance to side platform;
  • New bathrooms, ticket office, and food vendor space;
  • New and larger, glass-enclosed waiting area;
  • Upgraded main entrance;
  • New, expanded lobby, artwork, and newsstand;
  • Upgrades to the Main St. and Hamilton Ave. entrances, as well as the Mott St. tunnel;
  • New platform canopies with wood ceilings;
  • Addition of Wi-Fi, USB charging ports, electronic messaging, LED lighting, security cameras, and speakers throughout station.


Minimal impact on your commute

Service will continue throughout the duration of this three-year project. Look for the new train schedule issued to accommodate construction during off‑peak and weekend periods. Peak and reverse peak schedules will not change. Track and platform assignments for departing and arriving trains will change as the work progresses. In addition, some portions of the main platform will be closed briefly during construction.


Allow for extra travel time, listen for announcements

clockWhile this important work is being completed, customers should allow for extra travel time to access the open section of the platforms. Please listen for announcements and view signage directing customers to the proper platforms and tracks for boarding trains during each phase of this project.
