Manhattan-Bound Side of the Mosholu Parkway Station 4 Will Close for Three Months While Under Rehabilitation

MTA NYC Transit announces the ongoing $55 million construction project to reconstruct and rehabilitate five stations along the Jerome Avenue 4 line has come to the Manhattan-bound (southbound) side of the Mosholu Parkway station. In order to perform this vital work, the station will be closed beginning 5 a.m. Monday, August 13 until mid-November, 2007. Our goal is to bring five stations -- Burnside Avenue, 183rd Street, Kingsbridge Road, Bedford Park Boulevard and Mosholu Parkway -- to a state of good repair.

To accomplish this work within a safe environment, the rehabilitation project of the Mosholu Parkway station is being done by closing one side of the station at a time. The Bronx-bound (northbound) side of the Mosholu Parkway station was completed in January. At this time, we will begin demolishing and reconstructing mezzanine floors and walls, replacing canopy roofs and wind screens, upgrading station booths, and installing new staircases on the southbound side.

During the three month closure, Manhattan-bound customers who normally use the Mosholu Parkway station as their "home station" can board the Bronx-bound 4 train, ride one stop north to Woodlawn and transfer to the Manhattan-bound 4 to reach their destination.

Riders can get information on service advisories, weekend service diversions, and other news on MTA NYC Transit's podcast service -- TransitTrax. TransitTrax is available in a downloadable mp3 format on the MTA website at www.mta.info.
