Wonder if they’re going to keep that ped crossing at Mineola.The project states that ALL grade crossings will either be eliminated or converted to dead ends, which means that both pedestrian and vehicular crossings. In fact, Urban Avenue is not the only one seeing activity, they are doing work at Covert Avenue. Those are the first two crossings that will be eliminated because Urban Avenue is the first crossing West of Hicksville, and Covert Avenue is the first crossing East of Floral Park.

And I predict it will be replaced by a pedestrian overpass that will serve both Main St. and the current ped crossing.Yes I read that Main Street crossing will be eliminated by dead-ending on both sides. Not sure about the pedestrian bridge. Earlier there was a link to the LIRR project site. That info kind of moved around .. I would check http://lirrexpansion.com/ for more info.

Mineola Blvd will go under the tracks.
