Speaking to a meeting of the Long Island Association Wednesday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said $5.6 billion in upgrades will transform the Long Island Rail Road and help make up for decades of neglect. The work will involve laying 10 miles of new track to ease congestion along the busiest part of the rail road, along with the replacement of 20 miles of aging track. Stations will be renovated, parking will be added and signal switches and other equipment will be upgraded. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
The MTA has formally handed operational control of Grand Central Madison over to the Long Island Rail Road.
The LIRR assumes control of the 750,000-square-foot station complex from MTA Construction & Development, which oversaw the building of the hub which will bring LIRR trains to Grand Central Terminal.
An opening date has not yet been but the MTA has promise to finish the project by the end of 2022.
