The Metro-North tracks from East 115th Street up to East 122nd Street will be replaced over the next couple of years.
Starting this summer, the contractor will be building the new concrete supports under the existing tracks, getting them ready. This process of building the new concrete supports will take about a year, and only in Spring 2024 will they begin to replace the actual tracks.
The plan will be to replace all the tracks on the eastern side first, then to do all the tracks on the west side.
Sidewalks will always remain open, but parking will be impacted and eliminated during the construction and road closures will be ongoing.
This will be a massive undertaking and critically necessary to replace a 130-year-old faltering raised train structure. In the end, we’ll have a solid, safe, and quieter MTA line above Park Avenue.
