As renovations continue at Penn Station, the state announced Wednesday an improvement plan for dozens of Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) stations, including two in Queens.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state is investing $5.6 billion to transform 39 LIRR stations.
He said the much-needed improvements will strengthen transportation infrastructure and increase rider capacity by 80 percent.
The Jamaica Station will undergo a major face lift, as it will be upgraded with higher speed switches and new signals.
Aging platforms are expected to be replaced, and some will be expanded to accommodate full-length, 12-car trains.
The station is also projected to be equipped with heated waiting areas and Wi-Fi.
Meantime, Flushing Station is expected to undergo general improvements.
