Almost a year ago, MTA NYC Transit announced that service on the northern end of the would be affected until 2012 due to a $47M multi-station renovation project. The work which is taking place at the Dyckman, 207th, 215th, 225th, 238th and 242nd St stations would call for service disruptions & station closures.
One of the most recent phases of the project was taking place at the 238th Street station which had its Manhattan-bound platform closed due to station component work. Earlier today, the agency announced via a press release that the platform would reopen tomorrow:
MTA New York City Transit announced that the Manhattan-bound platform at the 238th Street 1 station is scheduled to reopen on Friday, June 24, 2011. The platform has been closed since May 23 for station component work: replacing the platform edge, installing tactile strips, replacing the canopy and making repairs to the platform.
