MTA Re-Opens A,C Station Mezzanine Connection to Southbound J,Z Platform at Fulton Street Station

The transfer was closed temporarily on March 5, 2012 to allow for renovations of the station.

Improvements to the connection include two new sets of stairs added from the A SubwayC Subway platform to the A SubwayC Subway mezzanine, bringing the total to 10 sets of stairs. In addition, a number of stairs were widened from their previous configuration. New lighting, floor and wall tiles have also been installed.

The full contract for the mezzanine, led by Skanska Civil USA Northeast Inc., is scheduled to be completed by December 2012. Remaining work includes the installation of two new escalators and five new elevators. All stair reconfigurations are now completed. The re-opening of the transfer also allows for the last section of the reconstructed A SubwayC Subway mezzanine to be opened, which is now completely open to customers.

Other components of Fulton Center have already been completed and opened for customer use, including the rehabilitated 2 Subway3 Subway Fulton Street Station, new 4 Subway5 Subway Fulton Street Station southern entrances at Maiden Lane, a new entrance at 135 William Street, as well as both platforms and a underpass at the R Subway Cortlandt Street Station.

This customer benefit is part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's larger $1.4 billion Fulton Center project. Scheduled to be completed in June 2014, Fulton Center will link 11 subway lines, PATH service and the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan.
