Ronkonkoma LIRR Line To Have Construction Disruptions

Planned track work will impact east and west commutes for three weeks.

Beginning Monday Ronkonkoma line riders on the Long Island Railroad will have to board a bus as track work will affect all stations from Ronkonkoma to Farmingdale. The work is the final part of a three-month track tie replacement project that began in May. The new disruptions will last at least until August 10.

Manhattan-bound commuters will have to board a bus at Ronkonkoma and ride it to Hicksville, where they can re-connect with a train the rest of the way. This disruption will be in affect on weekdays from approximately 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. According to the LIRR's home page, riders are warned to plan an extra 32 minutes into their daily commute.

East-bound commuters will be affected from approximately 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The trains from Penn Station will travel as far east as Farmingdale, but riders wishing to go further east will have needed to board a bus at Hicksville. Riders using this bus service east-bound should anticipate an additional 18 minutes of travel time.

According to the LIRR, the tie replacement work, when finished, will ensure a smoother, more comfortable ride, and will increase service reliability.
