Sea Beach - 9 Station Renewal

$395.7M Station Renewal Project

These long-term service changes currently underway at nine subway stations along the Sea Beach N subway line are due to a station renewal project being conducted by MTA New York City Transit. The nine stations that will be renewed are: 8 Av, Fort Hamilton Pkwy, New Utrecht Av, 18 Av, 20 Av, Bay Pkwy, Kings Hwy, Avenue U, and 86 St

Originally opened in the 1910s, these stations will receive the following improvements:

  • Improved platforms and overpasses
  • New stairways and handrails
  • Upgraded communication systems
  • Repairs to canopies and columns
  • ADA accessibility at 8 Av and New Utrecht Av stations, and
  • Installation of Help Point intercoms and station artwork.

In order to perform this renewal work, access to the tracks is necessary.  Therefore, we will be completing this project in two phases; the Manhattan-bound platforms will be rehabilitated first and will be out of service for 14 months at seven of the nine stations. Manhattan-bound service will still be available at 8 Av and Bay Pkwy stations via temporary platforms.

Once the Manhattan-bound work is finished at these stations, the work on the Coney Island-bound side will begin.  This project will take place over a period of four years, and yield a better travel experience for our customers.

Manhattan-bound N subway trains will not stop at
86 St, Avenue U, Kings Hwy, 20 Av, 18 Av,
New Utrecht Av, and Fort Hamilton Pkwy until Spring 2017
