NEW YORK — Metro-North Railroad commuters are about to see major changes at five stations. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority Board in early 2018 will spend $91.5 million for upgrades to Harlem-125th Street, White Plains, Crestwood, Port Chester, and Riverdale. The Harlem station serves The Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven Lines; White Plains and Crestwood are on the Harlem Line; Port Chester is on the New Haven Line; and Riverdale is on the Hudson Line.
The work includes new signage, platforms, energy efficient LED lighting, benches with USB chargers, station dashboards and columns to provide convenient access to information, improvements to restrooms, Wi-Fi, and cellular connectivity. Upgrades at White Plains include improved station entrances, as well as new interior wall panels, floor tiles, ceiling tiles, and fixtures. The design-build contract was won by Halmar International, which also will work on the Long Island Rail Road triple tracking project between Floral Park, N.Y., and Mineola, N.Y., in 2018.
“The Enhanced Stations Initiative raises the bar for station aesthetics, safety and amenities,” said Cathy Rinaldi, Metro-North’s acting president. “Customers can anticipate a better environment at our stations, and all with minimal disruption to their commute. These improvements bring the stations into the 21st century and help enhance the quality of life of the communities they serve.”
