There will be significant delays and alternate bay assignments for Nassau Inter-County Express

buses at the Rosa Parks Hempstead Transit Center on Monday due to ongoing work by PSEG Long Island, according to a NICE spokesman.

The north side of West Columbia Street will be closed from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., meaning many bus routes will have alternate bay assignments, spokesman Andy Kraus said.
