Summary[edit]

Description

MAP: Selected MTA Climate Change Resiliency Projects


1. Metro-North Substations & Breaker Houses: Sandy-damaged electrical facilities substantially raised and rebuilt at higher elevation to avoid future flood damage.

2. NYCT Subway 148th Street Portal: Specially designed “logs” to span 24’ across portal opening where 3 Train emerges from the ground at 148th Street, to keep out flood waters.

3. NYCT Bus Depot: Deploying flex walls or swing gates at Michael J. Quill Bus Depot on the far west side, to prevent future flood water ingress.

4. NYCT Subway Montague Street Tube: Brand new duct banks, high capacity pumps, marine grade cabling for badly damaged Montague Street under river subway tube.

5. Bridges & Tunnels: Hugh L. Carey Tunnel rapidly returned to usability after being completely unpassable after Sandy. Damaged internal finishes, electrical and communications systems replaced. Permanent flood barrier at portals ongoing.

6. NYCT St. George Terminal: Replace traditional timber railroad ties, vulnerable to rotting thanks to high water table, with recycled plastic crossties. Enhancing climate resilience and acoustic performance.

7. NYCT Subway Coney Island Yard: 3 miles of interim perimeter flood protection for surges up to FEMA 100-year flood elevation + 2’ of safety. Permanent, and taller, protection in design phase.

8. Rebuilt Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge, which suffered significant damage from Sandy. Erosion damage, electrical equipment & lighting repaired. Shoreline and abutments fortified. Substations being replaced above 500-year flood elevations.

9. NYCT Subway Rockaway Line: Extensive clearing of debris and repairs along the Rockaway line, quickly restoring full service. Sheet pile going 30’ below ground and 10’ above to protect the line from future storms.

10. Rebuilt Cross Bay Bridge, which suffered significant damage from Sandy. Erosion damage, electrical equipment & lighting repaired. Shoreline and abutments fortified. Substations being replaced above 500-year flood elevations.

11. NYCT Bus Far Rockaway Bus Depot: A new, more resilient Far Rockaway Bus Depot is being constructed with passive flood mitigations and water-resistant materials. Old depot was particularly low-lying and surge-vulnerable facility; new depot will be protected from 500-year flood levels.

12. LIRR: Long Beach Branch signal, power and communications being fully replaced and elevated above flood levels or hardened in place with flood-resistant materials and techniques.

13. LIRR: 3 Long Beach Branch substations, powering third rail for electrical traction, being newly built and raised to above future flood levels.
