Superstorm Sandy: Fix&Fortify Efforts Continue

St. George Terminal, Staten Island Railway

The St. George Terminal is the northern terminus of the Staten Island Railway. During Superstorm Sandy, flooding of the entire yard and interlocking caused significant damage to all 12 tracks, multiple switches, equipment and cables, as well as to facilities and the train control tower. The project will replace and modernize the track and signal systems and rehabilitate the control tower.

Part of this effort is a public/private collaboration between NYC Transit and the adjacent private developments of Empire Outlets and the New York Wheel, part of the St. George Waterfront Redevelopment Project. Participants are collaborating in development of critical design elements and coordinating construction efforts to make the yard and the private development more resilient to coastal flooding.

The $107 million yard and tower reconstruction project began in September 2014 and is scheduled to be complete in mid-2017.

Construction Start: September 2014
Construction Completion: Summer 2017
Construction Cost: $107 million
Location: Staten Island
Service: Staten Island Railway, connections to Staten Island Ferry
