Just a short time ago, the MTA Long Island Rail Road announced that station renovations at the Stony Brook station would begin. Here are the complete details courtesy of a press release I received:
The MTA Long Island Rail Road’s Stony Brook Station, on the Port Jefferson Branch, will undergo a $2.7 million renovation project starting Monday, February 1. A temporary trailer will serve as a waiting room during part of the work and will be open from 4:00 AM through 5:00 PM daily. Nine parking spaces will be temporarily out of service in order to stage materials and the trailer.
The project includes refurbishing the two station restrooms, replacing station building interior walls, installing new platform shelters, and light poles. The station building work is expected to be completed by mid-April, 2010, while the exterior work is expected to be completed by January, 2011.
Funding for the work in the MTA LIRR Capital Program was secured by State Senator John Flanagan.
The total daily ridership to and from Stony Brook is approximately 1,450.
