Hicksville Station On Track For Changes

TrainUpgrades_022515DCommuters passing through the busy Long Island Rail Road station in Hicksville won’t have to deal with the grime and decay of the old hub for much longer, as the MTA is preparing to make some major changes to the 54-year-old station.

Among the changes will be a new translucent canopy over the platforms, which will allow natural light to filter in; a look more pleasing to the eye than the dark cement roof currently in place.

The current structure of the platforms, including the cement pillars, will remain in place, but will be repainted. The MTA will also be redoing the platforms with new cement.
