The Town of Huntington has temporarily closed the easternmost pedestrian bridge connecting the north and south parking garages at the LIRR Huntington train station for further inspection and evaluation purposes.
A visual engineering condition inspection was performed by Desman Engineering Consultants for the Town-owned north and south parking garages, which included the east and west pedestrian bridges connecting the garages; the easternmost bridge is property of the MTA LIRR and the western bridge connecting the lots is property of the Town of Huntington.
Based on the unsafe conditions observed in the report, the town decided to close the bridge Friday for further inspection and evaluation.
Communication and coordination with the MTA LIRR is continuing.
“Together, the Town and LIRR are working diligently to investigate and address the concerns associated with this overpass, as the safety of our residents and commuters remains paramount,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci.
