Rail Yard Info Center Opens at Ronkonkoma Station

LIRR customers and local residents are invited to visit the Mid-Suffolk Train Yard Information Center at Ronkonkoma Station on January 29 and 30. The Mid-Suffolk Yard project, which involves expanding the existing Ronkonkoma Train Yard, is a critical element in the MTA's efforts to improve the Main Line commute. Additional yard capacity is needed to support direct service to Grand Central Terminal when East Side Access is up and running. The yard expansion plan calls for the use of undeveloped property already owned by the LIRR on the south side of Ronkonkoma Yard. The Info Center, located opposite the Ronkonkoma Station ticket office, will be staffed by LIRR personnel ready to discuss the project in detail. The hours of operation are:
  • Thursday, January 29 from 1 PM to 9 PM
  • Friday, January 30 from 6 AM to Noon
