Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that Urban Avenue in New Cassel reopened to traffic on time this morning. The roadway is the first of eight Long Island Rail Road grade crossings to be completely eliminated through the LIRR Expansion Project. Most of the crossings are being transformed into underpasses, which enhance railroad safety, improve traffic flow in communities of Nassau County, and reduce localized nuisances from horns and bells.
