Manhattan’s redesigned and repositioned South Ferry subway station, the recipient of $530million in rehabilitation, will open March 16, New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority says.

 

The upgraded station, served by the No. 1 (ex-IRT) line, will offer more streamline and sheltered connections with the Staten Island Ferry terminal at Battery Park. It also now will offer free transfers to the R and W lines at nearby Whitehall St. Station.

 

The new terminus can accommodate 10-car trains, eliminating the need for subway conductors to urge riders to reposition themselves in the first five cars of a train due to platform constraints.

 

A projected January opening was postponed after contractors and the MTA discovered the gap between the new platforms and train doors were wider than specified by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

 

The project, part of MTA’s $15 billion capital construction program, originally was expected to cost $490 million.
