It's not the news any commuter wanted to hear, but for some Long Island Railroad customers: it will take more time to get home.

The MTA said they notified their affected customers for months through pamphlets, newsletters and announcements regarding disrupted service, which will impact Babylon, Long Beach and Montauk lines beginning on July 9.

Construction for the East Side Access, which will eventually connect the Long Island Railroad to Grand Central Station, has now resulted in the cancellation of three afternoon peak trains altogether and four additional peak trains now have what the MTA is calling "adjusted times."

Those commuters can now expect longer travel times and some overcrowding.

While some are pleased the construction is continuing, others PIX11 interviewed wondered why the MTA chose one of the busiest times of day to disrupt service.

In response, an MTA spokesperson told PIX11 the specific tunneling phase of the East Side Access Project is work that could only be done in the time frame they chose, the evening rush hour.

The changes will be in effect for the next four weeks.
