I apologize for the lack of updates recently but I have been & continue to be under the weather. I am starting to feel better so I will try & catch up by the end of the weekend. Lets start with the announcement that ADA work has begun at the Fulton Transit Center. Here are the details courtesy of a press release sent to me by the MTA NYC Transit:
MTA NYC Transit announces 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. (For more information on the reconstruction, log on to www.mta.info and click on Capital Construction>Major Projects>Fulton Street Transit Center.)
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.
Well this is one station to stay away from as if it was not confusing & crazy as it is. I & many others can’t wait for this all to be done. The new Fulton Transit Center should be a big hit when it is finally up & running.
