Caption: Pedestrians and drivers are getting their first glimpses of visible construction at the Fulton Street Transit Center with the erection of the 110-foot crane with a 170-foot boom at the project site at Broadway and Fulton Street in lower Manhattan. The crane, which will be used to erect nine stories of structural steel, will remain on the site for the next four months. Once the steel is erected, the glass fa.cade installation will follow, erected by other means. The Fulton Street Transit Center is an 180,000 s/f, $176 million project that will modernize lower Manhattan's major subway hub. When complete, thousands of daily subway passengers will be able to access the A, C, 4 and 5 trains via a network of spiral staircases, elevators and escalators, as well as connect to the 2, 3, J and Z trains. In October 2010, Plaza Construction was named General Contractor for the project in a joint venture with Schiavone Construction. The transit center is scheduled to open in 2014.
