Just a little while ago I received a press release from the LIRR in my inbox. The press release was to announce a press conference being held by Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) President Helena Williams. The press conference is being held to discuss this weekend’s major service disruptions due to the Queens Interlocking Project. Here is the press release that will appear on the MTA’s site later today:
