-Ocean Avenue.
-Lowell Avenue.
-Carleton Avenue.
-Brentwood Road.
-East Great Neck Road.
-Wellwood Avenue.
-Stewart Avenue.
-South Oyster Bay Road.

Electric road work signs are up in Deer Park at LI Ave, saying Carl's Path closed on 10/21-10/23 for road work. As they're placed on both sides of the tracks, I'm assuming this is referring to the work to rip out and replace the old siding track at the grade crossing?

It's going to be real interesting when they get to do this at Commack Rd. I'll plan on not venturing out around town that weekend.

There must be no track outage involved, as that's Dual Mode weekend.

Line shutdown east of Farmingdale the weekend of 10/28-29, likely the last time this year.
