A Legal dispute between MTA and Garden City is threatening to delay the LIRR’s Third Track project and drive up costs of the $2.6 billion project.
The MTA filed a lawsuit saying the village is refusing to issue the needed permits to reconstruct the Denton Avenue Bridge in order to make the Third Track project possible.
The Garden City Village Mayor is citing concerns from residents over potential changes to the roadway and bridge design.
It’s the latest legal battle in an ongoing feud between Garden City and the MTA over the project.
