FTA, New York City Transit to begin environmental study on proposed Fulton Street Station


New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority, New York City Transit and the Federal Transit Administration plan soon to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Fulton Street Transit Center in lower Manhattan.



The center would provide access to, and transfers between, nine subway lines. The project includes rehabilitating the 4/5 and 2/3 lines of Fulton Street Station; improving mezzanine and platform access at the A/C line Fulton Street Station; adding an underground concourse connecting the N/R line and the area west of Church Street with the 4/5 line and an area east of Broadway; building a pedestrian and passenger connection below Church Street to link the Cortlandt Street Station on the N/R line with the E line terminal station at the former World Trade Center Site, including a transfer between N/R platforms; and making improvements to subway street entrances.



The EIS would evaluate various construction alternatives and other environmental issues.
