East End LIRR Service To Remain Suspended

LIRR service on the East End will continue to be suspended due to a private sanitation truck striking a LIRR bridge over N. Main St in East Hampton. Here are the details for substitute service:

The Long Island Rail Road today announced that it expects that buses will continue to replace trains at East Hampton, Amagansett and Montauk for tomorrow, Wednesday, May 21. The substitute bus service is necessary while LIRR crews work around the clock to repair structural damage to the LIRR bridge over N. Main Street in East Hampton. The bridge was struck by a garbage truck being operated by a private sanitation company at about 9:20 a.m. today, Tuesday, May 20.

(For tonight, buses are connecting with trains at Speonk. Customers for Westhampton, Hampton Bays, Southampton and Bridgehampton as well as East Hampton, Amagansett and Montauk will need to connect to buses at Speonk.)

Tomorrow, customers looking to travel westbound from East Hampton, Amagansett or Montauk will board buses at each station to connect with trains that will originate at Bridgehampton. Buses are scheduled to depart at normal train departure times. Trains originating in Bridgehampton are scheduled to operate at their normal departure times, but will be held at the station to wait for connecting buses if necessary.

Customers looking to travel eastbound to East Hampton, Amagansett or Montauk should board their normal trains and will connect to buses at Bridgehampton.

The force of the bridge impact caused pylons under the trestle to shift position. To ensure the safety of train service over the bridge, LIRR workers are using a crane to shift the pylons and rail viaduct back into their precise location.

The driver of the garbage truck was issued two moving violation summonses by East Hampton Village Police. One was for disobeying the posted clearance of 10’0”, and a second summons related to a vehicle inspection violation.
