MTA Glimpse Underground: Fast Track 8th Ave

By - Friday, April 27th, 2012

As part of the MTA Fast Track program, stations on the 8th Avenue lines from 59 St-Columbus Circle to Jay St-MetroTech and World Trade Center were shut down this week from 10pm-5am each night for repair. Scroll through the images above to get a glimpse into some of the work that went down underground. (Also note the Revs and Sane tags in the background.) “Eight hundred workers from MTA New York City Transit performed critical maintenance tasks on the A, C and E subway lines each night from April 23-27, 2012. Workers were able to replace rails and cross ties and scrape track floors, thereby removing muck and debris. In subway stations, paintable areas not reachable during normal train operation were scraped, primed and painted. Maintenance crews also took the opportunity to clean lighting fixtures, change bulbs and repair platform edges while performing high-intensity station cleaning. These photos show a small sample of what they did.” Photo: Patrick Cashin for the MTA
