July 22, 2013 4:53:58 AM PDT
A new construction project that will impact the Long Island Rail Road gets under way this week.

Crews begin work on the East Side Access project Monday.

Some peak trains will be canceled, while a number of other train times will change.

Special timetable cards detailing all the changes are available at LIRR stations.

Officials say that from July 22 through August 16, five rush hour trains - three westbound and two eastbound - will be canceled while work is performed in Harold Interlocking in Queens.

Additionally, four peak Hunterspoint Avenue/Long Island City trains will terminate at or originate from Jamaica.
