N.Y. Fulton St. transit center foundation completed

Posted on August 19, 2010

New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced underpinning for the Corbin Building and the foundation for the Fulton Street Transit Center are complete, marking a major milestone in the $1.4 billion project that will connect five subway stations and 10 subway lines, which will improve access for more than 300,000 daily customers.

The overall project, funded primarily with federal funds, remains on schedule and will be completed in 2014.

The project will provide improved street level access and visibility, create an underground link to the renovated historic Corbin Building and be home to more than 25,000 square feet of retail space.

Contractor Skanska Civil USA Northeast Incorporated completed the foundation and the underpinning of the Corbin Building on schedule. Other components of the Transit Center have already been completed and opened for customer use, including the rehabilitated 2/3 Fulton Street Station and new 4/5 Fulton Street Station southern entrances.
