Merillon Avenue Station Reconstruction
Changes to Platform Boarding Patterns; Entrance from Main Avenue at Roxbury Road Closed
Beginning on Monday, March 18, the western end of both platforms at Merillon Avenue Station (westbound
and eastbound) will be closed as construction activity integral to the LIRR Expansion Project commences.
During this time, the Roxbury Road entrance to the eastbound platform will close. All other access points to
eastbound and westbound platforms will remain open. Boarding/exiting patterns will also change.
To Board/Exit Trains at Merillon Avenue
Please be prepared to board and exit all trains (westbound and eastbound) from the first six (6) cars
Please plan ahead and allow additional time to reach the station platform while these changes are in effect.
The LIRR Expansion Project will add a third track along nearly 10 miles of right-of-way between Floral Park and Hicksville, increasing capacity, improving reliability and creating new service opportunities. Work at Merillon Avenue Station, which will later shift to the eastern end of the station platforms, is expected to continue through the second quarter of 2020. Thank you for your patience while work is underway.
