MTA Task Order 58 - Upgrades to Various Subway Stations
New York, NY
This project involves providing construction estimating services for various mitigation measures for two (2) station complexes - 42nd Street/Times Square and Lexington Avenue/53rd Street. Both stations serve multiple subway lines. The mitigation measures elevated the performance standard of these stations in the event of an emergency event (explosion, blast, fire, smoke), both natural and man-made. The proposed improvements minimized damage, loss of life and property. The mitigation measures did not involve physical hardening of any of the station components.
