NEW YORK CITY — The MTA is going to be very busy over the next five years.
The agency plans to spend more than $17 billion to repair the city's bus, subway and Staten Island Railway systems, with projects ranging from adding elevators to upgrading power stations.
DNAinfo New York has put together maps showing hundreds of these projects, so New Yorkers can get a glimpse of what's coming to their neighborhood. The data comes from the MTA's recently released 2015-19 Capital Budget.
The maps above show dozens of planned fixes, including improvements to the 42nd Street Shuttle tunnel, signal upgrades and repairs to substations, which are the MTA's power facilities.
The maps also break down the agency's budget by zip code to show how much investment each neighborhood is getting from the MTA.
The 11201 zip code, which covers Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights, is getting more than $420 million in MTA repairs over the next five years, more than any other area in the city, according to MTA data. Most of the funding will go toward signal modernization projects at the Jay Street, York Street and Hoyt-Schermerhorn stations.
A few caveats: Many of the pins on the map show estimated locations, because the MTA told DNAinfo that some project locations have not been finalized. Also, there are many planned projects that will occur in multiple locations, and those are not shown on the map.
The zip code funding totals are estimates too. The MTA is planning many upgrades that affect multiple neighborhoods or are on the border between neighborhoods. In those cases, the funding totals were divided among the neighborhoods equally.
Finally, this map only shows repairs by New York City Transit and the Staten Island Railway. Major MTA capital construction projects like the Second Avenue Subway and LIRR East Side Access are not shown.
