Mayor’s Letter to the Residents July 14, 2020

July 14, 2020

Dear Neighbors,

This weekend, the Long Island Railroad and their contractor, 3TC achieved an important and amazing milestone. They pushed the 8 million pound New Hyde Park Road undergrade crossing and railroad bridge into place and reopened the mainline for railroad traffic. This was an amazing engineering feat; only the third time the technique has been used in the Americas (Covert Avenue was the first). The process involves pushing the tremendous structure across the ground, stopping every 20 inches to make sure it is going straight and not too high or not too low. If it’s too low, they simply add some dirt in front of it. If it’s too low, they dig dirt out of the way. The challenge is that they can only move it one direction. Luckily, they got it right.

Our partners at Northwell Health have also been in touch and are extremely supportive. I don’t have any additional information that has not already been widely reported in the media.
I will share these reminders provided to me by Town of North Hempstead Supervisor, Judi Bosworth which bears repeating:

Mayor’s Letter to the Residents January 6, 2020

January 5, 2020

Dear Neighbors,

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. With 2019 behind us, we look forward to the opportunities and challenges that will be found in 2020.
After a relative lull in construction activity in Governor Cuomo’s Third Track Project, we will see the project resume in early February when work will commence on the elimination of the New Hyde Park Road crossing. Despite our objections, the MTA and 3TC will accomplish the work by completely closing New Hyde Park Road for the 7 months of the project.
