Commuting to and from the city will become a little easier for some Long Islanders

The LIRR Double Track project will extend service between Farmingdale and Ronkonkoma. At a kickoff event Wednesday, officials announced they are starting to assess the land for the project. The LIRR hopes Double Track will reduce commute times, boost development areas and create jobs.

The project is set to be completed by 2016
