This project will replace the Wilson Street Station and elevated track structure from Montrose Avenue to Leland Avenue with a four track station and platforms between the express and local tracks. The elevated track structure between Sunnyside Avenue on the south to Leland Avenue on the north will be replaced with steel columns and concrete track bed. The elevated track structure over Broadway Street will be full span, eliminating piers in the street right-of-way. The architectural facades of historic buildings will be preserved.
