Untangling the twisted subway lines that make up the
Fulton Street subway station is a problem that the Metropolitan Transportation
been trying to solve since long before 9/11. But the energy for development
that came in the aftermath of the attacks – and the funds to do
it – allowed
the agency to push forward the design of its own large-scale architectural
project in the area surrounding Ground Zero.
The new Fulton Street Subway
Station, which was presented to the public on May 26, will be funded
with $750 million of federal rebuilding money. Construction
will begin late this year, and the station will be completed in 2007. A public
hearing on the design is scheduled for June 8.
