Negative Declaration

Kings County - The New York City Transit Authority, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Stillwell Avenue Terminal Reconstruction Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The project includes the reconstruction and rehabilitation of a major elevated subway terminal eligible for listing on the State and National Registers of Historic Places. It serves four subway lines, several bus routes and serves as a "gateway" to the famous Coney Island Beach and amusements. The reconstruction of the terminal will include the rebuilding of virtually every element to bring all structures into a state of good repair. The viaduct, a steel enclosed structure will be replaced with an open deck system. Track and platform structures will be completely rebuilt and all four platforms will become ADA accessible. Employee areas on all levels will be consolidated and redesigned to satisfy operational requirements. A shed, spanning all four platforms will replace individual platform canopies and incorporate photovoltaic cells to provide partial electric power for the Terminal. Other elements such as the signal tower, RTO building and bus loop will be rebuilt and repaired. The Arcade entrance to the Terminal (Surf Avenue entrance) and a commercial building at 2903-2919 Stillwell Avenue will be demolished and replaced with a 3-story building incorporating a new control area, passenger amenities, numerous employee facilities and the NYPD district office.
