Port Authority of NY & NJ
The Light Rail system offers a one-seat ride from the Jamaica and Howard Beach Stations to JFK International Airport. The project consists of an 8.4-mile grade-separated trackway, 2 miles of which are located within the airport's central terminal area. A fully automated 4-car train stops at 6 stations serving the 9 existing airline terminals, as well as long-term parking and service facilities. DGA designed all architectural lighting systems for interior and exterior spaces at the 9 stations including platforms, connectors, lobbies, transfer nodes, and exterior canopies. Our scope of work included emergency lighting for the trackway as well.
