Rehabilitation of the Culver Line Viaduct

  • Client: New York City Transit
  • Location: Brooklyn, NY
  • Project Cost: $40,000,000



The Culver Line viaduct, which opened in 1933, is located between the portals of Carroll Street Station and Fourth Avenue Station, in Brooklyn. The goal of this project was to repair and rehabilitate the viaduct’s existing concrete deck, which had deteriorated.

While maintaining NYCT operation through two station areas, J-Track systematically removed 19,000 LF of track and special work portions.  Work continues on the installation of new Low Vibration Track (LVT) and other special track work, railroad ties and insulated joints as part of a new signal system.  Work also includes embedding a signal cable routing system into the floors of the mezzanines, the construction of relay rooms at the 5th Ave. and Lexington Ave. mezzanines, and the construction of three tunnel lighting rooms within the subway.
