The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (MTA) New York City Transit will start extensive improvements to the Broadway and 39 Av stations in Astoria on July 2, 2018. The work includes the repair and replacement of steel beams and columns, staircases, platforms, open-air canopies and concrete.
“These outdoor stations have deteriorated after more than a century of snowstorms, rain, sun, wind and daily foot traffic,” said NYC Transit President Andy Byford. “We thank our customers for their patience while we make these repairs and improvements; once these projects are done, major defects will be fixed and these stations will be in a renewed state for the local community to use for decades to come.”
During the station closures, subway riders can use the adjacent stations.
