LIRR to Construct Two New Elevators at Murray Hill Station


Dec. 27, 2017 By Christian Murray

Two new elevators are going to be installed at the Murray Hill LIRR station in Flushing, the MTA announced today.

The elevators will connect customers from the street to the platforms and are part of an $8.6 million project that also includes the installation of new security cameras, lighting and signage–and some platform work.

Construction crews will start work in March. The two elevators, with one at each end of the two platforms, meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.

The upgrades to the station, located beneath 150th Street and 41st Avenue, are expected to be complete in spring of 2019.
