And you thought L Train riders were having all the fun. The G train is about to start sucking even more next month with extended service disruptions planned for December and next March.
The Greenpoint Av. G-train station will see a series of service disruptions and closures over the coming months as part of the MTA’s plan to upgrade the station and make it more accessible.
Three elevators will be added as part of the plan, as well as updates to station infrastructure–including stairs, handrails, turnstiles, powered gates and braille signage.
The MTA announced Wednesday that southbound trains will not stop at the station for the month of December. Additionally, the entire station will be closed on weeknights in December from 9:45 p.m. and 5 a.m., and all weekend hours from Dec. 3 to Dec. 24.
A similar northbound train bypass of the station is scheduled for March 2019.
One of the new elevators will provide street-level access to the station on the east side of Manhattan Avenue, between Greenpoint Avenue and Kent Street. Inside the station, the two other elevators will service the northbound and southbound platforms, respectively.
