Nostrand Avenue Station Renovation Project Gets Underway
A new and improved Nostrand Avenue Station is on the horizon. The Nostrand Avenue Station Rehabilitation Project includes demolition and replacement of the existing station platforms and staircases. Funded through the MTA Capital Program and the Federal Transit Administration, this project will also include two new elevators that will provide accessibility to each platform, new platform canopies with LED lighting, improved station signage, Wi-Fi, USB charging ports, CCTV cameras, and new pedestrian overpasses with wind-screens to protect customers from the elements.
Construction will be divided into several phases to minimize the impact on train service. During Phase 1, customers must be in one of the first 4 cars to exit the train at Nostrand Avenue. Customers will access the platform from the New York Avenue staircases and board/exit trains as follows:
- Westbound customers must board/exit the first four cars of the train.
- Eastbound customers must board/exit the first four cars of the train.
We look forward to completing this project in 2019.
