Everyone - Here is the 3TC update for September 2022
https://lirrexpansion.com/2022/09/01/up ... ember-2022
With the opening of two segments of new Track #2 from Floral Park to Nassau 3 east of Mineola being
the big news of August the emphasis now shifts eastward to the Carle Place and Westbury areas...
In the Floral Park section of the monthly update pages an older photo looking east from Platform B
at the site of what now is Park Interlocking was used - which surprised me...A more recent picture
showing the revised track layout at Park should have been used instead - or a "Before and After"
with two photos showing the changes may have been more appropriate...
Three weekend track outages were mentioned along with the prime segments which will see track work:
September 10-11: Roslyn Road to east of the Meadowbrook Parkway bridge
September 17-18: Denton Avenue to the Mineola Station area
September 24-25: Mineola to the Meadowbrook Parkway bridge area
In Steve Lynch's LIRR website back on August 12 a PDF *LIRR General Notice 1-12* effective Saturday August 13
was posted - there is 59 pages total with Main Line interlocking track layout drawings a good example -
This PDF can be found in his monthly August 2022 LIRR website update posted September 1.
There are now numerous changes in the Main Line Third Track Project being reported from month to month...
Will Track #2 be completed in the next 8 weeks from Mineola through Carle Place and Westbury?
From recent changes I noticed this past week in the area they have a legitimate chance provided
that there is not weather problems (as example) to create setbacks - the noticeably dry Summer
of 2022 has helped 3TC to stay "on track" to finish the project on time and under budget...MACTRAXX
