Life Cycle Replacement of Speed Enforcement Systems MW53-1958System-wide

The purpose of this project is to replace speed enforcement system with a new system providing enhanced reliability and maintainability.

Five (5) locations comprising a total of eleven (11) systems on four (4) different lines with the new system.

3) Metro Tech (Lawrence) Interlocking, Broadway Line 4) Essex Street Interlocking, 6th Avenue Line and
5) Atlantic Avenue Interlocking, Eastern Parkway Line

This project will install overspeed protection equipment. The new equipment will assure that the speed enforcement system is maintainable and reliable; the first generation system suffered frequent failures due to its inability to withstand the harsh environment of the subway, or vibration on the elevated structure due to train movement.

Since they are adding elevators at Livonia, why can't they build a passageway while they are at it from the SB (L) to the NB (3) and make Junius ADA-compliant too?

But the authority is paying for the transfer with federal tunnel-repair money it cannot spend until 2019, so riders will have to wait, spokesman Kevin Ortiz said. Officials have also set aside $45 million to build a walkway connecting the two stations, and the free transfer will be permanent once the connector is built, but they have not settled on a contractor or a start date, he said.
