MTA-NYC Transit on the 14th St. Station ADA Project (F line/L line)
Presentation by MTA-NYC Transit on the 14th St. Station ADA project (F line/L line).
Plans were presented for construction that will bring ADA accessibility to both the 14th St./6th Ave. (servicing the L, F and M lines) and 14th St./7th Ave. (servicing the 1, 2 and 3 lines) subway stations, including adding nine elevators, new and/or refurbished accessible stairways, and platform and mezzanine improvements (refurbishments and/or new ones). There will be three elevators at the northeast corner of 6th Ave., one from the street to the upper and lower mezzanine levels, one from the lower mezzanine to the L platform level, and one from the upper mezzanine to the F uptown platform. Three more elevators will be at 6th Ave.’s northwest corner, two of them giving access from the L platform to the 1, 2, 3 passageway and to transfer to the F/M downtown. There will be work for the 7th Ave. station on 12th, 13th and 14th Sts. corners along 7th Ave. Three new elevators will include one giving access from the street to the mezzanine level, one giving access from the mezzanine to the northbound platforms, and one giving access from the mezzanine level to the southbound platform. The passageway between 6th and 7th Aves. will be made ADA compliant. There will be structural steel and concrete repairs throughout the L tunnel and to the wall and ceiling on the L line from 1st to 8th Ave.
Construction will require opening the ground to put in elevators. Ground level work will take place from 7 am to 3 pm. Underground work will go on 24 hours, within barricades when trains are in service. There will be pedestrian walkways established around the work areas, and the 6th Ave. bike lane will be maintained. Mitigation measures during construction will include directional signage, posting of notifications of service disruptions and closures, maintenance of walking surfaces free of trip hazards, maintenance of visibility around barricaded work areas, flagging of moving equipment, dust monitoring, housekeeping for cleanliness, noise and vibration monitoring and control, maintenance of adequate illumination, and physical barriers around work zones. Once the project is completed a new wayfinding system will be installed directing people to where the new elevators and stairs are located. The project is expected to be completed in 2024. For further information, contact: [email protected]. There’s also a 24/7 hotline phone number: 800-374-9042.

Overnight Work at the Holland Tunnel
The Port Authority will be performing some overnight work on Wednesday and Thursday of next week (4/27 and 4/28) at the entrance to the tunnel.
The work involves demolishing and removing concrete barriers. This specific work needs to be done at night because it requires lanes to be closed for safety reasons.
The Port Authority will have a noise control officer present and require its contractor to implement sound mitigation efforts such as acoustic blankets to reduce the noise impact.
Residents can call (833) 446-6473 (833-44-NOISE) if they feel we have exceeded allowable noise levels.

Lane Closure – Intersection of Canal Street and Hudson Street
The Port Authority is performing work related to the Holland Tunnel Sandy Repairs andResiliency Improvements Project at the intersection of Canal Street and Hudson Street beginning on Monday, January 11th. Their contractor has secured the necessary permits and will excavate a section of the right lane from Hudson Street to Canal Street (Image below) to dig test pits in support of the tunnel portal flood barrier installation. The test pits require a closure of this section of the lane for approximately 10 days.
A couple of key points:
There will be a detour for the daytime hours (7:00AM-3:00PM) for traffic turning right on Canal Street from Hudson Street.
Pedestrians will be directed to the North Side of Canal Street.
A PANYNJ Traffic Engineering analysis concluded no significant traffic concerns associated with this work.
