In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, the MTA Capital Plan included this station as one of a group of seven stations and one fan plant throughout the New York City subway system that required mitigation measures to prepare for future superstorms to prevent the loss of life, reduce operational disruption, and minimize repair costs. Ultimately, this $32 million federally funded project addressed flood mitigation and resiliency for a range of stations, tunnel portals, fan plants and other critical assets necessary for continuing operations of the MTA.
The project is located at 155th Street, a local station on the IND Concourse Line which serves the B and D trains. Designed by Urbahn Architects, the final design promotes a healthy conversation about the impacts of climate change and flooding in the neighborhoods.
