LIRR: Hearings on third-track expansion project begin

Six public hearings will be held starting Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017, on the LIRR third-track expansion project, a plan to add capacity and service to the commuter railroad. The project aims to construct a 9.8-mile long third track between Floral Park and Hicksville, and officials have said it has the potential to be the largest public works project on Long Island in decades.
