Harrison Substation

As part of New York City Transit’s (NYC Transit) “Fast Forward” plan, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has been installing state-of-the-art Communication Based Train Controls (CBTC) on various subway lines. To best maximize the benefits of CBTC on NYC Transit’s L train subway line, three substations are being designed and constructed to help increase train frequency and accommodate ridership needs.

The MTA selected STV to serve as the lead designer as part of a design-build contract to develop one of these three substations located in Brooklyn. Railworks and L K Comstock are the contractors for this below-grade facility, which will be outfitted with all new electrical, mechanical and communications equipment.
