Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and New York City Transit (NYCT) officials yesterday marked the completion of a two-year, $31 million rehabilitation project at the Dyckman Street Station.The project included the addition of a state-of-the-art elevator from the station mezzanine to the southbound platform, and major repairs to the station's exterior and interior finishes, MTA officials said in a press release."We have been able to fully rehabilitate this historic station improving the structural aspects and customer amenities while retaining the unique architectural features that have made this station so visually special," NYCT President Carmen Bianco said. After years of deferred maintenance, the finished station now has new concrete platforms, a refurbished Fort George Tunnel Portal, new platform windscreens, new canopies that include salvaged wood rafters, and a refurbished control area with restored historic finishes.In addition to the Dyckman Street Station work, MTA officials noted the completion of $23 million in repairs at five other NYCT stations: 207 Street, 215 Street, 225 Street, 238 Street and Van Cortlandt Park-242 Street. Platform edges and canopies were replaced at all five stations.
