Fulton Street Transit Center Continues to Take Shape


The Fulton Street Transit Center is more than 50 percent complete and is on track for its scheduled overall June 2014 completion, with the MTA opening up various parts of the complex for public use before then. MTA Capital Construction continues to reach new milestones, most recently installing the first superstructure steel for the Transit Center Building on March 9, 2011.



A 100-foot tall tower crane has been installed on Broadway and steel erection will continue over the next several months, finishing by the end of 2011. One train car length away, restoration of the historic Corbin Building is continuing on both the interior and exterior façade, with the north wall of the building fully restored to allow for the adjacent Transit Center Building to commence steel work. Restorationof the Corbin Building, an 1888 landmark, is expected to be complete by the end of 2012.


The reconfiguration and rehabilitation of the Fulton Street A/C Station is one of the most complicated aspects of the entire complex and continues to progress well. All structural work has been completed on the A/C Mezzanine East and final finishes, including glass tiles and a LED wayfinding band, which are being installed on the corridor walls. Work also continues to progress on the new entrance at 135 William Street which is scheduled to open in July. An additional entrance at 150 Willam Street will be open by the end of 2011 and in 2012 a new elevator will be installed in the station at 129 Fulton Street.


Station rehabilitation on the Fulton Street 4/5 Station continues and the Dey Street Concourse is structurally complete.


This fall the southbound platform of the Cortlandt Street R Station will be reopened, restoring a vital link in Lower Manhattan to residents, businesses, and visitors alike.

When fully complete, the $1.4 billion Fulton Street Transit Center will connect six (2/3 Fulton, A/C Fulton, 4/5 Fulton, J/Z Fulton, R Cortlandt, and E WTC) subway stations and 11 subway lines (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, E, J, R, Z), improving access for over 300,000 daily customers that pass through this major transit hub in Lower Manhattan. Some components of the Transit Center complex have already been completed and opened for customer use, including the rehabilitated 2/3 Fulton Street Station, new 4/5 Fulton Street Station southern entrances, and the northbound platform at the Cortlandt Street R Station.
