$156 million in funding for Manhattan Fulton Street Transit Center

Written by 

Congressman Jerrold Nadler, the representative of Lower Manhattan and the senior Northeastern member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said  there will be $156 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding for the Fulton Street Transit Center in Manhattan. These federal funds, which Nadler supported, will be used for construction and improvements of the new Downtown transit hub. Improvements will focus on connections between stations, passageways, platforms, systems, and restoration of the historic Corbin building.

"The Fulton Street Transit Center represents a significant new boost to New York City's subway system, and an important economic development initiative for Lower Manhattan," said Nadler. "This major project will generate good construction and transit jobs, better connect Downtown's subway grid and provide much-need investment in a neighborhood that is still rebuilding since 9/11."
