Station renewal work at the Ditmas Av station will pick up again as of this Monday. Here are the complete details via the official press release:
Beginning 5 a.m., Monday, January 25, the southbound platform of the Ditmas Av F station on the Culver Line in Brooklyn will be closed at all hours as work continues on a station renewal project at the station. All southbound trains will bypass the station during this time.
The Ditmas Av station renewal project is part of a nine-station renewal/repair project on the Culver Line totaling $80.7 million. The work at Ditmas Av consists of critical repairs to the steel station structure and improvements to architectural treatments, including street and platform stairs, walls and floors; platform panel replacements; tactile warning strip installation; new artwork and windscreens; bird deterrent system installation; and new light fixtures. The station originally opened for service in 1919.
To accommodate customers who use the Ditmas Av station, the northbound platform will remain open during construction. Southbound customers traveling to the station can stay on the train to 18 Av and transfer to a northbound train to Ditmas Av.
Southbound service at Ditmas Av is expected to be restored in May 2016.
