MTA NYC Transit Emergency Ventilation Project for the Lexington Avenue Subway Line on Park Avenue

The Community Board 6 Transportation Committee held a public meeting on June 6, at which the Metropolitan Transportation Authority made a presentation on the proposed Emergency Ventilation project for the Lexington Avenue Subway Line. The MTA proposes a 4-5 year project along the East (northbound) side of Park Avenue to install large fans underground with ventilation gratings along the sidewalks. The project will involve tunneling and “cut and cover” methods of construction. One lane will be kept open for northbound traffic. July 1 is the close of the comment period. The MTA plans to end the scoping phase of the project by Fall 2016 and to begin the detailed design by June 2017.
