Once complete, 14 St-6 Av will have:
- Full accessibility to the L platform with an elevator, followed by an elevator connecting the FM platform. Additionally, with the next capital plan, the 1/2/3 platforms will also be made accessible. This will be managed as one project to increase efficiency, and will be done in phases with the L platform accessibility scheduled for completion first. Details include:
L platform accessibility: This project will provide two elevators from the street to the mezzanine, and another two from the mezzanine to the L train platform. Work will start on or before December 31, 2020, and will complete on or before December 31, 2022.
F, M platform accessibility: As part of the design and construction of the L platform accessibility, we are also designing and planning certain preliminary preparatory work for additional accessibility upgrades to the F and M train platform, including two elevators. With the additional elevators, we'll use the two street elevators that will be installed to support the L platform accessibility to also connect the F, M trains mezzanines (both uptown and downtown) from street level and the passageway leading to 14 St-6 Av Station on 7th Avenue. Construction of this project is to be included as part of the 2020-2024 Capital Program Plan proposal, which will seek the right approvals and funding to start construction in that five-year time period.
