Portions of the south parking garage at the Huntington Long Island Rail Road station will be closed beginning Monday, Aug. 17, due to a waterproofing project that is the last phase of the garage’s rehabilitation.

  The entire roof level of the garage will be closed for an estimated 24 days starting Aug. 17.

  The project will then continue to the garage’s lower levels, one level at a time. During these spans, each estimated to be 24 days in length, three-fourths of the level being worked on will be closed.

  Commuters are advised that parking should be available in the surface parking lot on the west side of New York Avenue between Railroad and Church streets, but that they should allow some extra time to walk to the station.

  The closure comes four months after more than 100 parking spaces on the fourth level of the south parking garage were closed as part of an emergency repair project on the fifth level.

  The waterproofing project at the south parking garage at the Huntington Long Island Rail Road station is being performed by Patterson-Stevens Inc. of upstate Tonawanda.

Editor's note: An Aug. 13 report in The Long-Islander incorrectly stated that Renaissance Downtowns was managing the project.
