The tangled layout of Times Square Shuttle Station can be confusing for the more than 200,000 passengers it serves every day.

The tracks are located on sharp curves, creating large platform gaps that prevent this key station from being ADA accessible.

All structural modifications and additional framing will be performed in the confined spaces of the existing subway tunnels and with limited headroom for framing modifications.
