ADA work begins at Fulton Street Transit Center

Written by 

MTA NYC Transit said that work on the Fulton Street Transit Center has entered the next phase with the start of construction work on the AC mezzanine at Broadway-Nassau and the new ADA accessible station entrance at William and Fulton Streets.

Barricades are being installed along portions of the AC platform and mezzanine levels. Existing artwork in the station will be removed and temporary stairs are being built as preparations are made for the eventual replacement of the AC mezzanine ramps and staircases.

Customers may find that they will have to change their usual travel patterns when using the complex, as the additional barricades will affect passenger flow. Entrances at the southwest corner of William and Fulton Streets and at the north side of John Street at Broadway will be closed. The easternmost AC platform staircase will be closed. Access to the northbound JMZ may also be affected. Customers should also expect weekend service changes during this time.

Service notices providing information about the project's impact on station conditions will be posted within the station.
