N Line Renovations

BIG CHANGES FOR COMMUTERS AS BIG CHANGES ACROSS-THE-BOARD FOR THE MTA ARE BEING LINED UP. IT IS THE FINAL PHRASE.


BIG CHANGES FOR COMMUTERS AS BIG CHANGES ACROSS-THE-BOARD FOR THE MTA ARE BEING LINED UP. IT IS THE FINAL PHRASE OF A $395 MILLION PROJECT TO ADD LIGHTING, PLATFORMS, STAIRS AND LIGHTING TO STATIONS ON THE LINE. TRAINS WILL RUN EXPRESS FROM EIGHTH AVENUE TO CONEY ISLAND, SKIPPING THESE STATIONS. RIDERS CAN THEN TRANSFER FOR A NORTHBOUND N, TO GET BACK TO THEIR STOP. THE WORK IS EXPECTED TO LAST UNTIL LATE 2018. AND THE MTA HAS MUCH MORE CONSTRUCTION AHEAD. CHAIRMAN JOE LHOTA SAYS OVERNIGHT CLOSURES OFFER THE BEST SOLUTION. WE CAN GET A LOT OF INTENSE WORK DONE. TAKE ALL THE RESOURCES AND PLOW IT INTO ONE AREA AND MOVE ONTO THE NEXT STATION. Reporter: THERE IS MUCH DISCUSSION ON WHO WILL PAY FOR AN $800 MILLION PLAN TO REVAMP THE ENTIRE SYSTEM. GOVERNOR CUOMO SAYS MAYOR DE BLASIO SHOULD PAY HALF THE BILL. THE MAYOR SAYING IT IS THE STATE’S RESPONSIBILITY. WE GAVE THEM $2.5 BILLION OF CAPITAL MONEY TWO YEARS AGO AND, VERY, VERY LITTLE OF THAT HAS BEEN USED. SO I THINK THE BOTTOM LINE IS MTA HAS HAD A MANAGEMENT PROBLEM FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. Reporter: WHILE THE DISSUIT OVER FUNDING CONTINUES, LHOTA SAYS THE MONEY FOR REPAIRS WON’T COME FROM CUSTOMERS’ POCKETS. THERE ARE NO FARE INCREASES ON THE HORIZON. DON’T WANT THIS PROBLEM TO BE ON THE BACK OF THE RIDERS. YOU KNOW, THAT IS NOT THE FAIRWAY TO DO IT — THE FAIR, WAY TO DO IT. Reporter: THE NORTHBOUND CONSTRUCTION PROJECT SET TO LAST UNTIL THE END OF 2018. SO THERE WILL BE NO SOUTHBOUND STOPS AT SEVEN TRAIN STATIONS, ALTHOUGH THERE WILL BE SHUTTLE
