5 Stations Jamaica Line Rehabilitation

Ahern Painting Contractors was awarded the Five Stations Jamaica Line Rehabilitation with elevated line structure project by the MTA. The project was worth over 40 million dollars.  The scope of work entailed two main components of rehabilitation. One was the rehabilitation of the train stations at Alabama Avenue, Van Siclen Avenue, Cleveland Avenue, and Crescent Street along the Jamaica Line in Brooklyn.  The second component was the rehabilitation of the Jamaica Line’s elevated line structure from Broadway-Eastern Parkway to Cypress Hills.

On the Station portion, our work included major upgrades to the five station’s lighting, power, telephone, public address, customer information screens, fire alarm, mechanical wiring, automatic fare collection, metro card readers, and token booth wiring. On the line structure portion, we specifically completed 600V DC traction power wiring among other functions.

Traditionally, the electrical contractor is one of the last trades to complete its contract work and demobilize from such a complex project such as this. Thanks to the exceptional efforts of our management and field staff, we are extremely proud to have been the first trade off the job, which is one of our larger and more complex projects in our history to date.
