THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, July 5, 2019 Page 5 Wayfi nding and station improvements coming to Downtown Crossing, State, Haymarket and North Stations T he MBTA’s Fiscal and Management Control Board has awarded a nearly $30 million contract for improvements at four major subway stations. With two subway lines traveling through each of them, Downtown Crossing, State, Haymarket, and North Stations experience the highest passenger volumes of any station in the MBTA’s system. Under a contract with Judlau Contracting, Inc., the work is part of an overall strategy to upgrade station condition and wayfi nding elements throughout the MBTA system in order to meet the MBTA’s reliability and modernization needs. Over a 16-month construction period, the station improvement work at Downtown Crossing, State, Haymarket and North Stations will include the replacement of all existing signage and repair work to ceilings, walls and fl oors. Additionally, the project will include painting interiors, cleaning and refi nishing benches, replacing lighting and cleaning in-station artwork. The cleaning and painting enhancements will result in cleaner, brighter stations, creating an improved customer experience. “As part of our sustained eff orts to improve the MBTA customer experience, we are launching another round of investment in our stations,” said MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak. “Alongside massive investments to improve the reliability of MBTA services, we are also making needed improvements to key stations.” Wayfi nding improvements include the replacement of existing signage and additional signs at stations where they do not currently exist. This project will bring wayfi nding in each of the four stations into compliance with ADA standards, Limited English Proficiency standards and new MBTA Wayfi nding Standards and Guidelines, which emphasize overall improvements to accessibility. Replacement of the approximately 40,000 square feet of fl oor space at North Station will allow for better and safer travel through this major MBTA hub. Under the current project schedule, replacement of the floor space at North Station might aff ect Orange Line service at that station for up to six weekends. Beyond that, the MBTA is not expecting any additional operational impacts for customers during construction. Rossetti-Cowan’s Knitters That Care Lawrence A.
