NEW YORK – State-of-the art enhancements are going to be made to Metro-North Railroad’s White Plains, Harlem-125th Street, Crestwood, Port Chester, and Riverdale stations.
Construction is expected to get underway on the $91.5 million design-build contract with Halmar International in early 2018.
The initiative will include elements of state of good repair and enhancements, will result in stations that are safer, cleaner, brighter and easier to navigate, MTA officials said.
The general scope of the work includes new signage, platforms, energy efficient LED lighting, benches with USB charges, station dashboards and totems to provide convenience access to information, improvements to restrooms, Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity.
Upgrades at White Plains will include improve station entrances, as well as new interior wall panels, floor and ceiling tiles and fixtures.
