The Long Island Rail Road will start work on a second track between Farmingdale and Ronkonkoma in July.

Officials say the project should be completed in six years.

The plans were discussed Thursday at the future site of a new train station near Republic Airport in East Farmingdale.

The station will anchor a new commercial and residential development. The plans also include a transit hub with buses serving the Route 100 business corridor.
