Updated August 12, 2021 1:14 p.m.

Project Overview

The east end overpass replacement project will modernize the infrastructure at Huntington Station with a new, enclosed overpass featuring glass panel walls, brighter LED lighting, and CCTV security cameras. To help ensure construction activity proceeds safely, the following changes will go into effect:

Monday, August 30: As site mobilization begins, there will be changes to parking availability and parking garage access points.   

Tuesday, September 7: The eastern portion of both station platforms will close. Eastbound riders must be in one of the rear 8 cars to exit.

The overpass and elevators at the west end of the parking garage will not be affected by this work. We expect the new overpass to open in the third quarter of 2022 and appreciate your patience while work is underway. 

Please see the map below for further details.

Tuesday, September 14:  The south parking lot will temporarily close as the Town of Huntington performs renovation work. The parking lot project will include 29 new parking spaces, a new accessible sidewalk on the east side of Fairground Avenue, drainage improvements, lighting improvements, resurfacing with new asphalt paving, and reconstruction of the southern retaining wall. We expect the lot to reopen during the 4th quarter of 2021.To accommodate this work, two staircases leading from the lot to the platform will also temporarily close. The remaining staircases, accessibility ramp, and access to the parking garage will remain open. During construction, vehicles must access the south parking garage by the southern entrance from Second Street, and the eastern entrance from Lenox Road. There will be no access to the garage from Fairground Avenue.
