This weekend, Covert Avenue reopened exactly 180 days after it closed on April 15th. The crossing at Covert Avenue has been in existence for approximately 183 years. We are relieved of one of four at grade railroad crossings in New Hyde Park, (including Covert Avenue on the Hempstead line). The elimination of the Covert Avenue / Main Line at grade crossings will undoubtedly make the railroad crossing safer. It will reduce the train noise that residents have put up with for decades. The traffic should flow better on Covert Avenue.
