Abstract

The Atlantic Avenue Station is located under Flatbush Avenue at the intersection with Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, New York. This paper addresses the design and construction challenges involving the structural underpinning of the Atlantic Avenue Station, considered one of the busiest subway stations in New York City, with minimum disturbance to station operations. This paper focuses on the design of the micropile underpinning system, and documents the test pile program. Included are test pile details and installation procedures, load test results, conclusions from the test pile program, and recommendations for installation of the production piles.
