MTA Long Island Rail Road crews continued important infrastructure rehabilitation at Nostrand Avenue Station in Brooklyn over the weekend of January 26-27, with further work to be completed over the weekend of February 2-3, while the NYC Department of Transportation works to rebuild the Atlantic Avenue Bridge at East New York Station.
The Nostrand Avenue rehabilitation project will deliver ADA-compliant accessibility to the station platforms via two newly constructed elevators. This station currently consists of two elevated side platforms and is located on a viaduct and not wheelchair accessible.
Many of the station’s structural components will also be addressed, including work to replace the station platforms and platform substructure, railings, staircases, canopy system, station lighting, electrical and communications systems, CCTV security cameras, and signage. MTA Arts & Design permanent artwork will also be installed. This project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2019.
