Improvements

The wide scope of the rehabilitation project not only involves the tunnel, but also the stations near them, and three new power substations, which will allow us to increase L Line icon line capacity by 10 percent.

Bedford Av station in Brooklyn and 1 Av station in Manhattan will receive significant accessibility and capacity upgrades.
