Avenue H Brighton Station ADA Project

Managing Agency: MTA-NYC Transit
Location:
Q-train station at Avenue H
Project Description
: A ramp will be installed on the northbound platform to make the Avenue H station fully ADA-accessible.
Expected Date of Completion: Summer 2021

Project Details: MTA NYC Transit and contractor, Gramercy Group, Inc., will be commencing a project which will make the Avenue H Q station fully ADA-accessible with the installation of an ADA ramp leading to the Manhattan-bound platform. During this project, the Avenue H station will remain open for customer use, except for work which will require occasional service diversions (see schedule below).  For approximately three weeks in early 2021,  Q trains will bypass Avenue H in the northbound direction while our contractor performs work to make the station ADA compliant.

Phase 1: Street work is scheduled to start in mid-October 2020 on Avenue H between East 15th Street and the dead end.  Our staging area will occupy parts of the street and south sidewalk, but access to the Brooklyn-bound platform and the two stores in the immediate area (Wong Laundromat at 1502 Avenue H and Lee’s Deli at 1506 Avenue H) will be maintained at all times.  In addition, access to all residential buildings on the block face (1502-1508 Avenue H) will be maintained at all times.  Construction hours will be 7:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. during weekdays, and this stage of construction is scheduled for completion by the end of 2020.

Phase 2: The second phase of construction is currently scheduled to commence at the beginning of 2021, when the staging area transfers to Avenue H between East 16th Street and the dead end.  During this phase, there will be no parking on Avenue H between East 16th Street and the dead end.  The project will include providing a new Greenstreets area near the dead end when this project is completed.  Phase 2 is currently scheduled for completion in Summer 2021, at which time the entire project will be finished.
