Just a short while ago the Long Island Rail Road sent out a notice to announce the start of renovations to the LIRR Woodmere Station Building. Here are the complete details:
Major renovation work on the MTA Long Island Rail Road’s Woodmere Station building and nearby area gets underway November 17. During the work a trailer parked near the station building will substitute as a waiting area-ticket office. Ticket vending machines have also been relocated to the station platform near the temporary ticket office trailer. Train service will not be affected by the work.
The project includes improvements to the station building exterior, replacement of surrounding sidewalks and renovation of the ticket office waiting room and rest room.
New doors, windows, gutters, leaders and flashing will be installed along with new light fixtures. New soffits will be installed and the building will be painted. Adjacent sidewalks around the perimeter of the station building will also be installed. A new roof was completed during the summer of 2008.
New flooring, ceiling, light fixtures, bathroom fixtures, door frames and molding will be installed. The interior will also be painted.
Any necessary asbestos and lead paint abatement work will be completed before the actual building work begins.
The construction work is included in the MTA Long Island Rail Road’s Capital Improvement Program from a grant by State Senator Dean Skelos. The cost of the work is approximately $481,000. The project is expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2009.
