$15M In Accessible Upgrades Coming To Broadway Junction In BK

Long-awaited upgrades for those with disabilities are on their way to Brooklyn’s third-busiest transit hub thanks to a new federal grant, officials announced this week.

The $15 million in funding — known as a RAISE grant — will bring seven new elevators, a ramp, new stairs and other upgrades to the Broadway Junction station, which is not fully accessible despite its daily pre-pandemic ridership of more than 100,000 straphangers.

The funding was announced Monday by U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries and U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer, who said he made a personal call to Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to ask for the funding.

Seven elevators, new stairs, a ramp and other renovations will be added to the station, which is the third busiest in Brooklyn.
