MTA unveils replacement of Cherry Valley Avenue bridge in Garden City
The MTA has unveiled a replacement of the Cherry Valley Avenue bridge in Garden City.
The bridge, originally built in 1871, was known for being struck by over-height trucks more frequently than any other Long Island Rail Road bridge. It was struck over 20 times in 2022, which forced the rails to be shut down for some periods of time.
The replacement bridge is raised by over four feet in the hopes of improving LIRR service.
