MTA Subway Change

March 27, 2017

    53 St is closed for renovation – All times, until Fall 2017

    Every week, Moovit updates schedules with MTA changes so you always have the most accurate trip directions and don’t waste time walking to a closed station or waiting for a train that isn’t coming.

    Three century-old R Subway line stations in Brooklyn will be the first to undergo an expansive subway station modernization project, with a new look and design that focuses on customer experience and modern amenities.

    The stations at 53 St, Bay Ridge Av and Prospect Av will get top-to-bottom renovations from the entrances to the turnstile areas to the mezzanines and platforms. The renovations for all three stations include infrastructure work such as concrete and steel repairs; new platform edges; waterproofing; upgraded electrical and communications systems; track wall and platform wall repairs; new granite flooring; new stair finishes; glass barriers in station mezzanines; new LED lighting; and improved station signage.
