February 14, 2001 The MTA Long Island Rail Road's Stony Brook Station, on the Port Jefferson Branch, will undergo a $2.7-million renovation project starting February 1. A temporary trailer will serve as a waiting room during part of the work. Nine parking spaces will be temporarily out of service in order to stage materials and the trailer.
The project includes
refurbishing the two station restrooms, replacing station building interior
walls, installing new platform shelters and light poles. The station building
work is expected to be completed by mid-April, 2010, while the exterior work is
expected to be completed by January 2011.
The total daily ridership
to and from Stony Brook is approximately 1,450
