Right now as we speak, the new Twelfth Street underpass is being laid down. Unlike the grade crossing eliminations, this will see a crane lifting precast segments similar to boxes at the site. They have excavated and removed everything at the site, there is a massive gap with the tracks taken out, and the crane will lower those segments in that gap. Afterwards, they will put the tracks back in, and we shouldn't have any issues come tomorrow.
Finally the eyesore of seeing the concrete pads left over from the crossing will be gone. Ramps and stairs however, I have no clue how far along they are when it comes to that, but all I know is they are putting in the tube and there are openings on both sides of the tracks that will mark the entrances/exits of the underpass. As soon as that is squared away, both platforms A and B (under construction) will be lengthened from 10 to 12 cars. The temporary B platform will not be extended.
Two weeks from now the Willis Avenue bridge for the Oyster Bay Branch will be box-jacked Northerly. One month from now on the second weekend of July, the Willis Avenue bridge for the Main Line will be box-jacked Southerly.
Getting steps closer, but after these are pushed into place and open up, then Main Street I guess will see the signals finally ripped out, and the unfortunate demise of NASSAU Tower. Mineola's new Platform B is under construction, has been erected, but now they have the big section that will include the ticket offices on the South side next to the Intermodal Center.
