As renewal projects at the Saratoga Av and Pennsylvania Av 3 line stations near completion, MTA New York City Transit will reopen the stations at 5:00 a.m. Monday, September 19. The two stations were closed for renewal work on April 11, 2016 as part of an $88 million capital project to rehabilitate seven elevated stations along the 3 line on the New Lots Av Branch. During the closures, customers were able to take advantage of free shuttle bus service. Improvements at both stations include the installation of brand new windscreens, platform lighting, benches, trash receptacles, guard rails and ADA tactile warning strips on the platforms. Both stations were painted and the fare control areas were reconfigured to enable better customer flow. Structural renovations include the installation of new columns, platform rubbing boards, and new mezzanine floors. While service at these stations will be restored, there is still work to be completed, including the installation of new windows, and a new exterior façade to the mezzanine.
