Infinite Consulting Corp. (Infinite) provided Safety and Quality Management services in support of the construction management and inspection of the Flushing/Main Street Station circulation improvements. Originally constructed in 1928, the nationally registered historic station is served by the IRT 7-line local train continuously, and the IRT 7-line express train during rush hour periods in the peak direction.
This $30 million project is designed to alleviate passenger congestion and improve circulation and operational capacity at the station. The circulation capacity improvements of this station will be accomplished with the addition of eight new stairwells: (four street-to-mezzanine and four mezzanine-to-platform). The innovative design of the new stairway configurations will ensure a smooth passenger transition from street level to platforms. Modern fare arrays will also add to a streamlined passenger experience.
