Broadway Junction to become ADA-accessible with slate of new elevators


Broadway Junction, one of Brooklyn’s busiest subway stations and most crucial transfer points, is finally set to become accessible for people with disabilities with the construction of seven new elevators, Senator Chuck Schumer announced Monday.

The feds have allocated $15 million to construct the elevators, as well as ramps, platform modifications, and signage compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The labyrinthine Brownsville train complex is a meeting point for the A, C, L, J, and Z trains, and is also a few blocks from a Long Island Rail Road stop.
