A project to install elevators and other accessibility features at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) New York City Transit (NYCT) Greenpoint Av G Subway station is moving to the next construction phase, reports Mass Transit Mag.
The project will install three new elevators and update station infrastructure such as stairs, handrails, turnstiles, powered gates and braille signage.
Work is expected to take a total of 28 months to complete.
NYCT is installing an elevator linking the southern end of the station mezzanine to the sidewalk on the east side of Manhattan Ave. between Greenpoint Ave. and Kent St. Two other elevators will provide access to the northbound and southbound platforms, respectively, from the station mezzanine.
In addition, the station agent booth will be modified to a wheelchair user-friendly height and new sidewalk pedestrian ramps will be installed.
