The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has put the finishing touches on a completely renovated Jay Street/Borough Hall A, C, F station as well as a new free connection to the Lawrence Street/MetroTech R station. Put it all together and you have the newly renamed Jay Street/MetroTech Station, an inviting entry point to the bustling Downtown Brooklyn area!
“This is a project that I think is delivering a fantastic benefit to the community,” said MTA Chairman and chief executive officer Jay Walder. “This is the third most heavily used station in all of Brooklyn. It’s correcting a mistake that was made in 1933, literally connecting together our station wasn’t done back then is providing accessibility to the disabled.”
The $160 million project includes a complete renovation of the Jay Street/Borough Hall Station, in addition to the new passageway.
