9 Subway Stations to Close for More Than 1 Year: MTA

Transit officials say work on nine stations along the N line in Brooklyn will begin next week.

The project will be completed in two phases.

The century-old stations are between Eighth Avenue in Sunset Park and 86th Street in Bensonhurst. They are: 

  • 8 Av
  • Fort Hamilton Pkwy
  • New Utrecht Av
  • 18 Av
  • 20 Av
  • Bay Pkwy
  • Kings Hwy
  • Avenue U
  • 86 St

Beginning Monday, the stations' Manhattan-bound platforms will be closed for the 14-month-long rehabilitation. After that work will start on the Coney Island-bound platforms.

The renovations include platform and overpass improvements, new stairways, enhanced safety features and upgraded communication systems. The Eighth Avenue station will get ADA-compliant ramps, and four elevators will be installed at the New Utrecht Avenue station for easier access to N and D trains.
