7 Line icon Line Progress in 2014

In 2014, MTA New York City Transit moved forward with three major capital improvement projects on the 7 Line icon Line in Queens: installing a new Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) signal system; performing track replacement and infrastructure work; and continuing Sandy Recovery & Resiliency work in the Steinway Tubes.

This work was scheduled over weekends when ridership is lower and gave our workers continuous, train-free access to the 7 Line icon Line. We realize the inconvenience 7 subway line riders faced, and extend our appreciation for your patience while this necessary work was performed.

We look forward to providing 7 Line icon line customers with improved safety and more dependable subway service as we continue to bring the line to a state of good repair.

More work is planned in 2015. Keep checking this page for more details and updates.
