What are these?

Recommended Posts

I found these all over the Avenue J station (both sides) and even a few outside. Is this because of the proposed rehabilitaion on the Brighton line?

The green slashes will repeat about every 3-5 feet, and there are at least 5 orange dots on each side.

A little off topic, but what does the orange line behind the yellow line symbolize? And how come they don't put an orange line on the renovated platforms?

Yes it is! I've seen this at Avenue H as well! They doing the rehab project fast! I thought they were gonna do this station after Avenue and Neck Road are done! :cool::):tup:

I believe the orange line is a warning strip just to let passengers know that they're approaching the edge of a platform. Riders should avoid standing past that orange line. New station platforms have a yellow tactile strip around the edge.

All over the Avenue H, J, M stations? That would be weird, if they were survey marks.

 

They are usually used to visualize where new stuff is going, and where important items such as utility conduits are. I've seen it before when a station was being prepped for rebuild.
