The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) just e-mailed a press release to announce a signal project will affect parking at the Wantagh station. Here are the complete details:
Work related to the Babylon Branch signal improvement project will affect some parking at the Wantagh Station this coming weekend, November 22 and 23 and again from December 2 through December 7.
November 22 & 23:
Beginning at 6 PM on Saturday, November 22 and continuing through 7 AM, Sunday, November 23, the LIRR parking lot east of Oakland Avenue in Wantagh will be closed and 19 parking spaces in the parking lot west of Oakland Avenue will be unavailable. During this time, five new signal huts will be moved by crane from the parking areas onto the railroad right-of-way area adjacent to the tracks as part of the signal improvement project.
December 2-December 7:
Beginning at 6 PM on Tuesday, December 2 and continuing through 5 AM, Sunday, December 7, up to 20 parking spaces in the parking lot west of Oakland Avenue in Wantagh will be closed off.

Both parking lots are operated by the Town of Hempstead. No train service disruptions are anticipated due to the work.
