New Hyde Park Station Relocation
Temporary Platforms to Open West of Current Station
The station reconstruction project underway at New Hyde Park Station, part of the LIRR Expansion Project, requires the temporary relocation of the station platforms.
Effective Monday, February 3, the current station building and platforms will close, and the following changes will be in effect:
- Temporary platforms will open to the immediate west of the existing station, between South 8th Street and South 12th Street. Westbound and eastbound platforms will have multiple access points, including accessibility ramps.
- Parking will be available at the Church of the Holy Spirit parking lot (16 South 6th Street).
- Ticket Machines will be available on the northwest side of 12th Street.
Please allow additional time to reach the station platform while these changes are in effect. For details, please see the wayfinding map below.
The newly rebuilt New Hyde Park Station will have platforms that can accommodate 12 cars (up from 10), ADA-compliant accessibility ramps, and will include amenities such as platform canopies, benches, shelters, renewed signage, bike racks, increased green space, Wi-Fi, USB charging stations, digital information displays and CCTV security cameras to improve safety. For more information about the New Hyde Park Station renewal and upgrades, please visit this page here.
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. Visit www.amodernli.com to learn more. Thank you for your patience while work is underway.

In addition to the station changes, New Hyde Park Road will be temporarily closed beginning Monday, February 3, between Plaza Avenue and Fourth Avenue, to accommodate construction activities. Detour routes have been established in cooperation with Nassau County, the Villages of New Hyde Park and Garden City, and other localities. As alternatives, the detours encourage the use Covert Avenue and Nassau Boulevard. Detour routes will be clearly marked by signage. For more information, including detour details and maps, click here.
A new bridge to span this crossing is scheduled to be installed on July 11-12, and the newly built roadway below the bridge is expected to reopen this summer. This railroad crossing is the third of eight such grade-crossing elimination projects being completed under the LIRR Expansion Project, also known as “Third Track,” set for completion in 2022. The grade crossing eliminations will enhance safety, reduce noise and air pollution and reduce traffic back-ups, as trains will no longer need to blast horns and vehicles will no longer need to wait behind crossing gates as trains pass.
