Since early 2007, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has been working to make the 2/3 Chambers Street subway station ADA compliant. The project involves installation of three elevators at the station. The first will be installed on the west side of Hudson Street at Chambers Street, where a kiosk will house the new elevator. It will carry riders from street level to the non-paid mezzanine area of the station.
Two more elevators also will be installed in the station, between the paid mezzanine area and the uptown and downtown train platforms.
Construction was largely completed in December 2008, with elevators operational in April 2009.
