We’ve invested in the Culver Line Signal Modernization project—an initiative which will solve the ongoing delays caused by old signals on the Culver Line from Church Av to West 8 St in Brooklyn by fully replacing them with modern signaling.
Here’s what you need to know about what we’re doing, how to use alternate service options as you commute, and the service improvements we expect when the project is done.
More reliable transit
We probably don’t need to tell you that the train’s reliability is below average on this stretch of track. Problems with old signaling systems is one of the leading causes of service disruptions. Replacing this equipment—which is about 70 years old—will help us decrease delays.
More resilient transit
Modern signals will make it possible for us to have more information about where trains are and how they’re performing. Installing modern signaling means that if there are problems with the new signals, we’ll be able to troubleshoot and resolve them faster.
We are continuing the installation of the CBTC system along the Culver Line, with several weekends of work scheduled through June 2022.
May 27 - 31 (includes Memorial Day)
Jun 4 - 5
Jun 11 - 12
Additional weekend work will be scheduled beginning in August 2022 and will run through the end of the year.
