Culver Line Signal Modernization

August 19, 2021

    While MTA invests in the Culver Line Signal Modernization project—an initiative which will solve the ongoing delays caused by old signals on the Culver Line from Church Av to West 8 St in Brooklyn by fully replacing them with modern signaling.

    Here’s what you need to know!

    Project update

    MTA is continuing to install CBTC system throughout 2021 and 2022.

    More reliable transit

    We probably don’t need to tell you that the F train’s reliability is below average on this stretch of track. Problems with old signaling systems is one of the leading causes of service disruptions. Replacing this equipment—which is about 70 years old—will help us decrease delays.

    More resilient transit

    Modern signals will make it possible for us to have more information about where trains are and how they’re performing. Installing modern signaling means that if there are problems with the new signals, we’ll be able to troubleshoot and resolve them faster.

    Service changes and alternate travel options

    Please note that as this project continues there will be changes to subway service- check out moovits trip planner before every trip so you never miss your ride again!
