Construction nears on glass and steel New York transit building

The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Capital Construction Co. will let bids next month for the crown jewel of the $888-million Fulton Street Transit Center project.

It is the fourth and final construction package of the project, which is slated for a 2009 completion.

Bids will be received Sept. 6 to build a 215,000-sq-ft steel and glass station topped by a striking oculus-shaped skylight, with an award scheduled for October, say MTA officials. The center will consolidate a dozen existing subway lines and provide a 400-ft-long, 29-ft-wide concourse linking to the new World Trade Center PATH station.
