Track alert – Weekend service changes on LIRR

Posted: Updated:

A heads up if you are taking the train this weekend as there are service changes on the Long Island Rail Road. 

LIRR service will be suspended between New Hyde Park and Hicksville Saturday.

Then Sunday there will be reduced service on the Huntington/Port Jefferson branch.

It's all due to a switch replacement project.

The railroad asks riders to use alternate branches, including the Babylon, Hempstead, Montauk or Port Washington lines, for the weekend.
