Aug. 25, 2010 Staff Report
Amtrak has announced a $460,000 plan to restore and revitalize with trees, shrubs, and fencing a section of its right-of- way along the Northeast Corridor in Woodside, Queens.
Amtrak has hired a Landscape Horticulturist to assist in the selection and planting of approximately 600 new trees and shrubs which the railroad will warranty and maintain for one year. In addition, Amtrak will install 1,250 lineal feet of standard fencing and 100 feet of ornamental fencing at four locations to prevent access to the tracks and will also remove debris along its right-of-way. Some of this work is already underway with the entire project expected to be completed in October.
